  • Designed for the U.S. Navy with the ability to fight enemies in close face-to-face contact, the Corsair was highly respected by Japanese aviators.
  • The pilots of the F4U achieved a kill ratio of 11:1.
  • In total, these aircraft made 64,051 combat sorties during World War II.
  • The machines delivered to the British Army had wings 203 mm shorter due to the lower height of the deck hangars.
  • Production took place between 1942 and 1953, making the Corsair the longest-produced American piston-engined fighter.
  • A total of 12,571 were produced.
  • Igor Sikorsky, a Russian-born designer, also helped with the development.
  • The price of the machine at the time of acquisition was 1 500 000 USD which today corresponds to about 3 000 000 €.
  • The typical W-shaped wing bending allowed for the installation of a 4 metre diameter propeller for maximum engine power.
  • The Japanese military nicknamed the Corsiar "whistling death".
  • American soldiers called the aircraft a "widow maker" because of its poor landing visibility.
  • The AU-1 version had reinforced cockpit and fuel tank armor.
  • With the arrival of the Soviet MIG-15 during the Korean War, Corsair deployments were limited to direct air support of ground troops.
  • During the Korean War, there was also one recorded dogfight between a Corsair piloted by Captain Jesse G. Folmar and an outnumbered force of 5 MIG-15s.
  • During the engagement, only the MIG was shot down and the Corsair was heavily damaged, but Captain Folmar escaped with only minor injuries.
  • The last Corsair deployment was in 1969 in the so-called "Soccer" war between El Salvador and Honduras.
