This former Quonset Air Museum Jet was used in filming Top Gun.
C1A COD(Carrier Onboard Delivery) This Air Craft was one of several taken off the assembly line to test a new AC, the E1 "Willy Fudd" the twin tail was added for better rudder control with a radar dome added on top, once testing was complete the AC was stationed at Quonset and the Dome removed, the Dome was removed in building 488 the former home of Quonset Air Museum,the twin tail was left on resulting in this being the only COD in history to have a twin tail, then the AC remained as a QUONSET "Jeep" until the base closed, it was the last AC to do a touch and go and leave Quonset Naval Air Station.
I was the plane Captain and did all the Museum history and restoration on this AC! Rick
