On April 4, 1944 the new F6F-5 took to the air. It was a much improved version of the
F4F Wildcat. The designers gave the new plane a redesigned engine cowl for the
engine that was now water-injected. The injection increased take off performance by
10% and increased the armament capabilities. Production of the F6F-5 lasted until
November 1945 when Grumman had rolled out more than 900 “5”s. The UK received
some of these aircraft under the Lend-Lease Act and they were designated Hellcat Mk.
II. This plane was so lethal that it earned the nickname “Ace Maker” because of the
large number of pilots that earned their 5 + victories while flying it.

There actually two Grumman F6F-5 “White 99”s with similar markings both belonged to
T. High Winters. Winters was the original leader of VF-19 on USS Lexington and in
September 1944 was promoted to Commander Air Group 19 and used the callsign “99
Mohawk”. The CAGs aircraft were inappropriately referred to as Hangar Lilies (always
parked on the hangar deck) with the first one damaged by flak and pushed over board.
On the second F6F-5 along with 8 victory markings; there was a flower painted forward
of the windscreen.
