The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was an American fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. The Corsair was designed as a carrier-based aircraft. However its difficult carrier landing performance rendered the Corsair unsuitable for Navy use until the carrier landing issues were overcome when used by the British Fleet Air Arm. The Corsair thus came to and retained prominence in its area of greatest deployment, land based use by the U.S. Marines. (From Wikipedia)

Hello, Good action image of the old Corsair plane in the air. The air shows are fantastic places for photography. You have a passion for aerial photography and take excellent handheld images of the old planes and the aviators who fly them.
