The aircraft was acquired by the Aerospace Museum in 2006. The aircraft is painted to represent the “Blue Angels” number “2” airplane, which flies the ‘right wing’ position. A Marine pilot, who earned Navy “Wings of Gold” by successfully graduating from the Navy’s flight training program, always flies the #2 aircraft. Volunteers from the Aerospace Museum of California restored this aircraft in 2006.
