The Vought F4U Corsair is an American fighter aircraft that served during World War II and the Korean War. It became popular for its speed, ruggedness, and firepower, excelling both as a fighter plane, and an attack aircraft in support of ground forces.
In this footage, we get to see the Vought Corsair F4U-1 return to the staging area from the Planes of Fame Air Museum after recovering from the flight demo.
According to the Planes of Fame website, the museum acquired the plane in 1970 and was restored in 1975. It was one of the oldest Corsairs that are still flying, and ever since it was restored, it took part in numerous air shows and was even flown in numerous movies like Baa Baa Blacksheep, and several television series.
