The F4U is an aircraft full of mystique, folklore and historical significance. The fact that we are lucky enough to have some of these famed World War II aircraft still flying for all to see and marvel at is amazing. Enjoy!

The Planes of Fame’s own F4U-1 was joined this year by 4 other Corsairs, Chuck Wentworth’s FG-1D, Lewis Air Legends FG-1D, the Freidkin ‘Comanche Fighters’ F4U-4, and an F4U-7 from the Erickson Aircraft Collection.
