National Geographic : 1955 May
If an enemy struck, there would be no time to make riveters of housewives, no time to build over 12,000 fighters as Grumman did Hellcats during World War II. Your government believes we must have the airpower now to defend us and to strike back instantly. We must fight with operational aircraft, not with what is on the drawing boards or flying experimentally. This is why your Navy knows it can depend on Grumman. Grumman planes, designed as much for quick production as they are for speed and performance, are ready in quantity when needed-which is now. GRUMMAN AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING CORPORATION Bethpage * Long Island * New York Designers and builders of the supersonic Tiger, transonic Cougar jet fighter, S2F sub-killer, Albatross amphibian, metal boats, and Aerobilt truck bodies.
