F4U Corsair

The always popular Chance Vought F4U Corsair, while distinguishing itself in combat is also distinguished as having the longest production run of any piston driven fighter produced by the United States.

Seen here while parking after performing at Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 2009.  My tendency of wanting to see the older World War II aircraft took me out of position to get good shots of these planes in the air.  A mistake I won’t make this year because I’ll know how to position myself better.

We watched as the pilot turned over the engine…

Spun around, propeller whirling, grass flying and headed out to the flight line.

A fence had separated us from getting a closer look at this airplane, but the next day the pilot had parked the plane inside the fence allowing my dad and I a closer look.

A beautiful Navy/Marine aircraft that even a US Air Force veteran like my dad could appreciate.
