Produced in the mid to late 1930s the F3F-1 as well as the 2 and 3 variants belonged to what probably was the most colorful era in US military aviation history. Grumman took all the lessons learned from the F2F and incorporated them into the F3F. The Flying Barrel, as it was commonly called, had a wide fuselage to accommodate the large radial engine spinning a three-bladed Hamilton Standard propeller. The plane also had improved retractable landing gear, longer fuselage that improved stability. The last F3F was retired by the USN in November 1943.

Fighting Squadron 7 (VF-7) “Blue Burglar Wasps” was established on July 1, 1939 but in late 1940 was re-designated VF-72 “Fighting Wasps” aboard the USS Wasp and on March 29, 1943 was disestablished. When VF-7 was first established they were equipped with Grumman F3F aircraft which they flew until 1940 when they received the Grumman F4F-3 Wildcat. It is a bit ironic that in the 1930’s and 40’s a male only VF-7 chose the “Blue Burglar Wasp” for a nickname because a male wasp can’t sting.
