The Vought F4U Corsair a legendary World War Two US Navy and US Marine Corps fighter was one of many stars at Aviation Nation 2014 at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. This particular example put on a great display and some speed in its passes. Great to see (and hear)!
During World War Two the F4U Corsair in US Navy and USMC service achieved 2,140 air combat victories for the loss of only 189 F4U’s to enemy aircraft. This equated to an impressive overall kill ratio of more than 11:1. In the right hands she was a deadly machine indeed!
