From a old navy jock;

Pretty simple, actually. It kind of represented a call ... kind of like an F-8 rallying cry .... "gather round" or "Hey Rube" (old times) or "Hooorah" (today) ..... F-8 specific, however ..... it originated from a '60's "rev-up" sound from a muscle-car engine ..... Some of the F-8 squadrons painted it on the front of the wing "droop" that would show when they "drooped" the wing to come aboard. The F-8 was an engine with wings and a pilot. A rocket ......... :)

It's just kind of an F-8 tradition .... "HUD'N, HUD'N" .... that's what they painted on the forward part of the "droop". We loved it when I waved 'em .... F-8 drivers .... good sticks.
