The F4U Corsair Plane

The Vought F4U Corsair was a military plane that was used heavily in both World War II and the Korean War. This fighter plane was first delivered to the United States Navy in 1940. In all, more than 12,000 F4U Corsair aircraft were produced by Vought. With 16 separate models of this plane, it had the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U Autel MaxiSys MS908.S. history.

As soon as it was introduced during World War II, it became known as the most capable fighter-bomber able to land on an aircraft carrier. The Corsair earned such nicknames as the "Bent Wing Bird," "Hog," "Ensign Eliminator," and "Whistling Death." The U.S. Navy attained an 11:1 kill ratio with this plane, making it the most effective aircraft in their arsenal. Over its 11-year lifespan, the Corsair was adopted by the U.S. Navy and Marines, as well as the French and New Zealand air forces, along with the air forces of smaller countries.

The plane's development began in 1938 as a response to a request by the U.S. Navy. According to the request, the plane's single-engine design needed to offer a range of 1,000 miles and carry four guns, along with two thousand pounds of anti-aircraft bombs carried in the wing. It could climb at a rate of 3,180 feet per minute. There were several prototypes made by Vought in advance of the first F4U Corsair autel maxisys ms906, the XF4U-1, which first flew in May of 1940. Vought was awarded a contract for 584 F4U planes in June of 1940.

The first single-engine U.S. fighter plane to attain speeds over 400 miles per hour, with speeds of up to 550 miles per hour achieved during dive tests. It also had the largest engine then available, a 2,000 horsepower, 18 cylinder version, accompanied by a propeller measuring 13 feet 4 inches across. The plane measured 33 feet, 4 inches long, with a wingspan of 41 feet. Despite these massive features, the Corsair was recognized as being much more aerodynamic than other naval fighter planes of the time.

Early F4U planes ran into several difficulties, such as problems of visibility resulting from the long nose, difficulty recovering from a spin, and stalling while making slow carrier landings. These problems were uncovered during early trials, and corrected early in the plane's history. In early 1943, the first F4U planes saw combat action. It is estimated that the F4U flew more than 64,000 operational missions during World War II, taking part in many major air raids and delivering more than 15,000 tons of bombs. Production of the Corsair persisted despite the end of the War in 1945. When the last F4U was delivered to the French in December, 1952, production of the Vought Corsair came to an end.

Today, more than two dozen Corsairs are still airworthy. Most are in the United States, although they are also held by museums and private collectors across the globe. It has also been seen in movies such as Flying Leathernecks, a 1951 John Wayne title. Today, the F4U Corsair remains one of the most iconic military planes of this era.
