|Chance-Vought F4U Corsair|
Once again I'll state, for the record, that though Kerry does enjoy jumping out of perfectly functioning aircraft, for fun (and profit!), he also knows how to fly those aircraft. And his blog is always a source of incredible aerial photos from his work as a ferry pilot. And the occasional photo of people jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. You really should read his blog, all the time. Hint, hint.
Now this post from Lex, in which the good Captain talks about his pilot's logs, also jumps into talking about the F4U Corsair as used by our maritime services in the Big One, Dubya Dubya Deuce. Most unfortunately the two links that were there are no longer viable. However, as there has been a bit of (ahem) discussion about the relative merits of the P-51 Mustang versus the Spitfire, just thought I'd let you read Lex's take on P-51 versus Corsair.
Point is, we all have our favorite birds. It's a matter of taste innit?
Oh, and here are some sweet Corsair videos I wanted to share. Enjoy.
