Agreed; and the Wildcat was certainly on my short list of suspects. But then again, the Hellcat was itself outshone, in the public eye at least, although not out-performed in its usefulness, by the F4U Corsair. Or the B-24 by the B-17; although neither were single engined. It's an interesting exercise to try to rank the various planes in both public popularity and actual usefulness. Thanks; Ernie P.
