  2. I was driving south on 87, before it was I-27. Saw one on the runway at LBB. I pulled over and walked across the highway. Back then (78-79?), the fence was belt high. I leaned on it as another guy walked over. We stood there watching as it did it's run up, then hoicked around and took off. That engine was beautiful. After she droned off into the distance, we talked about the beautiful Corsair, and he offered to take me flying. I never followed up with him. WW2 aircraft were beautiful and dangerous.

    1. There is a huge difference between single engine aircraft and multiengine... WW2 or otherwise.

    2. You got that right. It’s a sweetheart to look at… but it is a pig on the ground, and swinging that 10 foot prop makes some of its handling characteristics interesting. Can’t think of a worse plane to put on a carrier either…

  3. There's your next "stubfart" model RC plane.

  4. That's the F4U-1C, armed with four 20mm cannon instead of the usual six .50 machine guns seen on the other F4U-1 variants. Only a couple of hundred -C models were made, so a survivor is a very rare bird indeed. Pilots liked the 20mm for ground attack, but it only had a optional single centreline hard point for a single bomb whereas the F4U-1D came equipped with a plethora of pylons for bombs, rockets, and napalm tanks so the less-effective machine gun armament was a moot point.

  5. Also the aircraft in the photo has incorrect wheels and crankcase for a WWII F4U-1 series Corsair.
