Great Planes of History Series

With more than 12 000 built in six main versions and used by some air forces until the 1970s, the emblematic aircraft of above all the Pacific War, and a television star, the Chance Vought F4U Corsair was undoubtedly one of the most famous aircraft in aviation history. After difficult beginnings, the Corsair which is immediately recognisable by its cranked wings and imposeing large diameter propeller was one of the factors of the US Navy's successes during World War Two, It earned itself the nickname "whistling death" because of its engine noise and wing configuration. Because there was no immediate, effective successor, it bravely continued service into the Korean War during which it carried out almost 80% of the ground attack missions. The United States Navy and Marine Corps were the main users of the Corsai, but the British Fleet Air Arm also flew them during the Second World War in the European Theatre. Vought produced a special version for France, whom finally withdrew its last Corsairs from service at the beginning of the1960s.

Illustrators and specialists in world aviation Bruno Pautigny and Nicholas Gohin produced almost 200 unpublished profiles of this legendary aircraft for this fine volume.

Published May 2019, 144 pages, almost 200 colour profiles, hardcover, 8 1/4" x 11 5/8"
