VF-884 Bitter Birds Home based at NAS Olathe, Kansas. KoreanWar. -Flevo Decals. -Trumpeter F4U-4B kit. -Barracuda resin wheels G- Factor landing gear. - Barracuda cockpit decals, aftermarket seatbelts -Model Master, Tamiya, Alclad gloss coat. - ignition wires added to rockets, added T, wire , and EZ line antenna. - VF-884 was a Naval Reserve squadron and when the pilots were recalled for Korea there was some grumbling. As a result, the squadron badge was a Jayhawk and the nickname became “Bitter Birds”. This is very cool for me, since most of my life has been spent within easy driving distance to this former base.
