Manufacturer Description

The F4U Corsair family of aircraft wasn’t considered the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of the World War II for nothing. Its first variant, the F4U-1, was dubbed the “Whistling Death” because of its superiority in aerial combat and its distinct bent-wing configuration that produces a whistling sound. Manufactured by Chance Vought, the F4U-1 Corsair was the answer to the U.S. Navy’s need for a carrier aircraft that could be at par with the best land and carrier-based airframes. This USN carrier aircraft, which performed its first flight on June 24, 1942, was a great achievement for Vought because it was heavier and overbuilt than its land-based counterparts, which allowed it to withstand extreme pressure from deck landings.
