The F11F Tiger was first conceived in 1952 as the result of a design effort to create a low-drag, supersonic aircraft based on the Area Rule, which resulted in the Tiger's distinctive, wasp-waisted fuselage and thin wings. The project was designated G-98 and ultimately resulted in the F11F-1 Tiger, a transitional aircraft with impeccable handling and good looks.  However, good looks were not enough and the Tiger was supplanted by the much more effective and substantially faster F8U Crusader, but not before the plane came to the attention of the Blue Angels demonstration team.  The aircraft was so reliable, photogenic, and aerobatically capable that it served with the Blue Angels for a decade, long after the airplane was retired from active duty with the Navy.  The F11F-1 is a sleek, elegant, and truly beautiful example of Cold War transonic jet technology.  The Grumman Tiger's excellent overall quality and stage presence have earned it an enduring place in aviation history.
