Vought F4U-1D Corsair

Vought F4U-1D Corsair

By V-J (Victory in Japan) Day, September 2, 1945, Corsair pilots had amassed an 11:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft. The Vought F4U-1D's distinctive inverted gull-wing design allowed ground clearance for the huge, three-bladed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller, which spanned more than 4 meters (13 feet).
