Artist's Description

Corsair Bureau Number (BuNo) 124692

Definitely one of the most distinctive designs ever employed by a fighter aircraft, the Vought F4U-5NL Corsair lives as one of the most famous fighters built during WWII. Its gull-wing design to allow the propeller to rotate without hitting the ground made it an icon for a generation of plane “buffs” who knew the stories of such groups as the “Black Sheep Squadron” who utilized the F4U-5NL. Used in Korea as a carrier-based fighter and night fighter, the Corsair showed it technologically advanced features to survive in an era where propeller-driven fighters were being replaced by jets.

Photographed Over the Detroit River, Detroit – Michigan, at The Red Bull Air Race 2008. Pilot: Dan McCue.
