The F4U-1 Corsair was a World War II aircraft designed and manufactured by the Chance Vought aircraft company in the 1940s. Mainly used by the US Navy and US Marine Corps during World War II and the Korean War, the F4U Corsairs were outfitted with mechanically supercharged radial engines and were known as one of the greatest fighter bombers during WW II. One of the most renowned pilots that flew the F4U-1 was ace pilot Gregory “Pappy” Boyington. This Corsair variant was likewise flown by the rest of the Black Sheep squadron (VMF-214) at the Solomon Islands. This was the aircraft that credited Boyington with 22 kills, making him one of the most decorated airmen in history.
