This F-8 was TOC in June 1958 and spent much of its early service career at Naval Air Station (NAS) Cecil Field, Florida, assigned to VF-174 training replacement pilots. In November 1960 it joined VF-11 "Red Rippers", its first and only front line fighter squadron and was deployed aboard the carrier Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVA-42), although much of this time shore based at the U.S. naval base at Rota, Spain practicing gunnery and dogfighting. In April 1962 it was transferred back to VF-174 until being SOC in 1971 and ferried to the museum that same year for preservation.

In early April 1975 USS Hancock was temporarily being used as a helicopter carrier in preparation for the Saigon evacuation which occurred at the end of April. In order to keep Hancock's Carrier Air Wing 21 qualified for carrier operations, the USS Midway was used by the air wing for refresher training. This F-8J had just trapped aboard Midway and was taxiing over to the starboard forward catapult for launch. This F-8J was retired on 5 November 1975.
