This North American FJ-3 Fury was operated by Marine Corps squadron VMF-312. These aircraft were a Navy/Marine attempt to replicate the F-86 Sabre for Naval use. Some interesting details include the left wing mounted refueling probe, 4 × 20 mm Colt Mk 12 cannons with a total of 600 rounds and the folding wings. Over 500 examples were built.
