About This Content

She was affectionately - or sometimes not so affectionately - known by her pilots as the Bent-Wing Bird, the Ensign Eliminator, Hose Nose, Hog Nose, Sweetheart or Hog. Their choice of handle for this bird usually depended on their latest adventure in the 4.5-7 ton envelope of this solid but occasionally quirky airframe.

The F4U was born and bred to be a killer and she excelled at this endeavor, laying claim to an astonishing 11-to-1 kill ratio by the end of WWII. That does not include the unfortunate Ensigns who had so many problems trying to land the long-nosed bird on a carrier that the Navy finally ceased trying. They assigned the F4U to the Marines who quickly learned to love her for her superior fighting ways. The F4U eventually became a successful carrier-borne aircraft.

In her final form, which was the F4U-4, she was certainly in the running for 'Best Fighter of WWII'. The F4U-4 could out-climb the P-51 Mustang by almost 800 feet per minute and had exceptional speed at low and mid altitudes.

The F4U Corsair is truly a unique aircraft with its bent wings, long nose, and powerful engine. We know you'll have a lot of fun flying her!
