F4U Corsair

F4U Corsair

I had a great uncle who flew F6f Hellcats in World War 2. He had some time in Corsairs, said they called them the Hose Nose. Said that the carrier landings were a kiss of death for our Navy pilots. This was before the Brits showed us how to land properly and to great success. 

What was their technique? They didn't come straight in, but rather a large sweeping descending turn to final approach.

I had another great uncle who was a Marine aircraft mechanic in the South Pacific theatre. He loved working on Corsairs.
