Left Cockpit Console
This page contains links to various photographs and diagrams of technical details of the F3H Demon.  It is devoted to the guys that kept us flying - the mechs, the metalmiths, the electricians, the electronics technicians,  the storekeepers, et al.  Some people think that the Demon was not a safe airplane to fly but the enlisted troops in each squadron worked long, hard, sweaty and frequently dangerous hours to see to it that was not true and to insure that we came safely home.
