The Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation was founded in 1929 by Leroy Grumman.  Its first products were float planes sold to the Navy until W.W.II, when the company produced Wildcats, Hellcats, and Avengers. The Korean war saw Grumman's entry into the jet age with the F9F Panther. The Vietnam War saw the A-6 Intruder, the world's only All Weather Attack Bomber used by Navy and Marine Corps squadrons. The last days of the war saw the F-14. During the US Apollo missions, Grumman built the Lunar Module.
In 1994 the Northrop Corporation of California acquired Grumman.
