Corsair


Recommended Posts

Someday, I would like to see the Corsair on a carrier heading to battle. Would be an epic bird to fly. What's not to love? An R2800 and six fifties! This is the FG-1D at the Kalamazoo Airzoo.

Yes please, the sooner the better! And the earliest carrier-borne corsairs  were from armored carriers. I hope we get them one day. Those gentlemen knew how to fly the Corsairs. 🙂

I haven't been to the Air Zoo in six years. I don't recall seeing a Corsair there then. They had the Wildcat and an SBD under restoration at that time. Neither looked like much then. I've got to get back down there soon.

That red checker-nosed Corsair has been there forever. I saw it fly at an airshow, piloted by (late) LTCMDR Dale Snodgrass, way back when.

Odd I missed it. Gives me a good excuse to go back.

They have tons of new stuff there. Looks like I'll be there the 18th; planning to give one of their full motion simulators a workout.

Good thing that Corsair has arrows on it so the pilot knows which way to fly... 🫡

Forward and up. Imagine if he put it in reverse?
