WWII Aircraft of the Day - The Vought F4U Corsair
The Vought F4U Corsair
United States of America
No account of the fighting in the air during the war in the Pacific can pass without mentioning the Vought F4U Corsair.
It was the first American aircraft to exceed the speed of 640kms per hour.
Trails of the Vought F4U Corsair out at sea however showed that it's high landing speed and it's long nose made it unsuitable to be used on aircraft carriers.
