VOUGHT F4U CORSAIR WARPAINT 70

A piston-engined combat aircraft that managed to remain in frontline US Navy service for more than thirteen years in the 1940s to the 1950s, must have had something special. Such was the F4U Corsair, which entered US Navy service in 1942 and was not withdrawn until 1955. During that period the Corsair served in the Second World War and in the Korean War, generously contributing considerably to the war effort and achieving notoriety in the able hands of USMC pilots. The British Fleet Air Arm, too, flew the type in the Second World War, and indeed it was they who first employed it in deck operations. In 1956 the French Navy used it off its carriers during the Suez Crisis, and in Latin America it was still in use as a combat aircraft in 1978.
