    Default A Naval P-47?

    Looking for naval fighters on the web I found this article with pictures of Republic P-47 Thunderbolts embarked on aircraft carriers. There was a naval version of this plane? The report and photos, never seen by me before, can be viewed at the link below:

    I knew the Navy ferried all types of planes on carriers. But had not seen Jugs operating off carriers. Great stuff!

    It seems that they can take off but with out a tail hook no landing is possible.
