The gull shaped wings on a Corsair are unmistakable. It is one of the most iconic aircraft from WWII and the Pacific theater. Dubbed “Whistling Death” by the Japanese, Vought’s famous F4U Corsair served as one of the Navy and Marine Corps’ premier fighters of World War II. Hundreds of these aircraft could be on board aircraft carriers above and below deck thanks to their innovative folding wing design.  Ready to strike at a moments notice this aircraft is as beautiful static as it is in the air.
