The F9F Panther mahogany model airplane is based from the blue prints of the actual F9F-2 Panther aircraft used by the US Navy Blue Angels in the teams' 1949 Air Show.

At the end of 1940's the US Navy Blue Angels were flying the team's first jet aircraft, the F9F-2 Panther. Manufactured by Grumman, F9F-2 Panther aircraft was the first jet used by United States Navy (USN) in the Korean War. The Grumman F9F-2 Panther aircraft served with distinction in the Korean War together with the F9F-3 and the F9F-5. The Blue Angels used the Panther F9F-2 back in May of 1949, and a month after the F9F had been delivered first to the operational squadron. The US Navy Blue Angels began their transition to jets during the air show season in 1949 and accepted the brand new Grumman F9F-2 Panthers. In June of 1952 the Blue Angel as a demonstration team were reformed under their original Commander Voris and started flying another Panther but the more powerful variant the F9F-5. The Grumman F9F-5 is a faster version of the Panther. On the same year however, the several F9F-5 Panthers collided during the teams' performance of the four plane diamond formation causing the death of the Blue Angels' pilot Bud Wood.
