Documentary Description


The F4U Corsair is regarded by many as one of the greatest combat aircraft in history. When conceived, it mounted the most powerful engine and biggest propeller of any fighter in existence, and was the first US combat aircraft to exceed 400 mph. The US Navy adopted the F4U as a shipboard fighter-bomber in 1944, dispatching large numbers from the carriers of the Pacific Fleet. By the end of the war, it had established a destruction ratio of 11:1 against the enemy.
