Yeah, I wondered about the G-51 Type/Model name, too. Someone on FA explained once that FA uses the first/earliest designator for a particular model of aircraft when you enter the ICAO code, even if it isn't the common or most current name/type. In 1941, when Grumman began new development (as opposed to trying to use a previous model they were working on) they gave it the "G-51 Tigercat" designation. So, that is the first Type/Model for the Tigercat. And it only lasted a couple of months until Grumman was awarded a contract to build the first two prototypes which were then designated as the XF7F-1. More details are in the article I linked to in my previous comment.

Too cool! I want video,,Waaaaaaa! :) 5*****!

Thanks, Tom! You know, video would have been great, but at the time I was concentrating too much on getting still shots as the bird(s) came over head! Maybe next time I'll think of it in time.

Tom, another reason video would have been great is to capture the sound of a Tigercat as it flies right over you at about 200 feet. It is VERY impressive! It might be my new "favorite" WWII aircraft!

(Oh, and I know the Tigercat entered service too late in WWII to see action, but it was developed during the war and did see action in Korea.)
