In late 1950 US Navy VF-111 “The Sundowners” took their F9F-2 Panthers to Korea aboard the USS Philippine Sea (CV-47). On November 9, 1950, VF-111 Lt. Cmdr. William Amen was flying the lead aircraft providing support to F4U Corsairs and AD-4 Skyraiders when he encountered five enemy MiG-15s. During that encounter Lt. Cmdr. Amen became the first pilot to ever record a jet-to-jet aerial victory. VF-111 was later upgraded to the F9F-5 Panther and completed more cruises on the USS Valley Forge, USS Boxer and USS Lake Champlain.

The Grumman F9F Panther was the most widely used US Navy jet fighter of the Korean War. It flew 78,000 sorties and was responsible for the first US Navy air kill in the war - the downing of a North Korean Yakovlev Yak-9 fighter on July 3 1950. A total of 1,382 F9F Panther's were built
