We received the following slightly edited message September 99:

The FJ4 that is at the Museum of Naval Aviation is just that, an FJ4, not an FJ 4B that you show. It has the incorrect marking of a Navy attack squadron. All FJ 4's flew with Marine Fighter Squadrons, and none with Navy VA squadrons, although that is the way the museum dressed FJ 4, BU NO 139486

p.s. I flew FJ 4 , 139486 with Marine Fighter Squadron 232 out of Kaneohe Hawaii, in 1957.
