Vought F4U Corsair


The F4U Corsair is one of the most popular fighter planes of World War II. It was developed and built for the U.S. Navy. The F4U entered service in 1942 and was deployed mainly in the Pacific theater. Its enormous power and agility made the F4U Corsair one of the most dreaded fighter planes. Further variants of the Corsair were built until 1953 and served in the role of a fighter-bomber.
