Amazing Corsairs Starting Up
Out of these Corsairs, which one was your favorite? For us, it seems to be a toss-up between the first and the second Corsair.
The first one just looks dashing under the sun. However, the second Corsair has a bit more history.
It is owned by the Planes of Fame Museum and is actually a WWII Combat Veteran. It was used in several USMC squadrons during Operation Cartwheel in the Pacific Theatre. To date, it is still one of the oldest flying Corsairs in the world. It has been a staple in air shows since its restoration and has flown in several Hollywood productions.
These Corsairs are all iconic in their own ways. At the end of the day, they all have the same beautiful silhouette and a great-sounding Pratt & Whitney radial engine.
