F4-U Corsair (Vought)
The F4-U Corsair was developed by the American company Vought and made his first flight in 1940. In the beginning the US Navy wasn't impassioned of the Corsair but after a few victories they decided to equip all navy squadrons with the F4U.
It became the most important fighter in the pacific. At the end of world war II, the F4U has destroyed more than 2140 Japanese aircraft.
In the 60 years, the name "corsair" was used a second time for a new US Navy attack aircraft; the A-7 Corsair II.
