American warbirds.

Thank you to claremontmodernism for scanning and sharing with us this actual photo of these F4U Corsairs. These fighter planes went into service in 1942. Capable of speeds up to 400 mph these were some of the best fighters in WWII. They were also used in the Korean war and accounted for 80% of all ground attack missions  flown by Navy and Marine units combined. Later they were the subject of the T.V. series "Black Sheep Squadron"
