****Aeronavale F-8E 'Crouze'****
You have downloaded the pride of the French Navy, or at least how I saw it...
This is the air-superiority version of the F-8E. Not a pound of air-to-ground. The French operated the 'Crouze' longer than any other operator of the type, and probably far longer than even they expected to. It's a wonderful aircraft and one of my favorites to fly.
I chose an overall grey livery, it was one that I saw in a book somewhere, and I don't know why the Aeronavale painted them that way, perhaps they ran out of white paint for the undersides, but it was one of the most intriguing looks I've ever seen on it. It didn't last long, they painted them this color around 1975-1978 and then went to their dark grey overall scheme, which has been on it since.
