The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was a fighter aircraft that saw service in World
War II and the Korean War. Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and
Brewster-built aircraft F3A.
When flown in 1940, the XF4U-1 became the first U.S. single-engine production
aircraft capable of 400 mph in level flight. It was a remarkable achievement for
Vought, as carrier aircraft are, compared to land-based counterparts, overbuilt
to withstand the extreme stress of deck landings.
The Corsair is also popularly known as 'The Sweetheart of the Marianas' and
sometimes also as 'The Sweetheart of Okinawa' for its roles in these campaigns
respectively - the names were given by ground troops rather than by Naval and
The Corsair has been named the official aircraft of Connecticut, due to its
connection with Sikorsky Aircraft, in legislation sponsored by state senator
George "Doc" Gunther; Gunther has also organized a Corsair Celebration and
Symposium at Sikorsky Memorial Airport in Stratford, Connecticut, on Memorial
Day, May 29, 2006.
