Doug Ogle - the photo is showing a Grumman F6F Hellcat... :-)
Doug, That's FHC's F6F Hellcat.
Doug - your Hellcat is the F6F-5 version, USN BuNo 79863, c/n A-11008, and built in 1945.

The FAA civil registration of this aircraft is N79863 and it is owned by Vulcan Warbirds, Inc., c/o The Flying Heritage Collection of Seattle, WA.

Thanks for correcting me on this! I know the difference between these Grumman fighters.
Posted this late at night after a long flight across the Pacific. F6F and F8F and even F4F had that "Iron Works" look to them. Sorry for confusion.
