The Corsair had many nicknames bestowed upon it by friend and foe. But the most notable is “Whistling Death”. This hair raising name came not from the pilots or the crews, but from the enemy. The Japanese ground forces in the Pacific became all too familiar with the sound of a Corsair overhead. When the fighter would dive at a steep angle, rushing wind would be collected through the oil cooler ducts in the wings. This would allow for a whistling sensation that gave the Corsair its character appeal. This art deco design is a must have!
