Title: Douglas F4D Skyray

The F4D Skyray (later F-6A) was a carrier based interceptor which first flew in 1951. It was only in service for a short time and did not see combat. It does have the distinction of being the first carrier-based aircraft to hold the world speed record, and it was the first US Navy aircraft to exceed Mach 1 in level flight. 422 examples were built and they were retired from service in 1964.
