Description Extended Information
 
Armour Collection B11B592 USMC Chance-Vought F4U Corsair Fighter - Donald Yost, VMF-351, USS Cape Gloucester (CVE-109), Okinawa, April 1945 (1:48 Scale) "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, commenting on the British airmen in the Battle of Britain

Its gull-wing shape made it instantly recognizable. Its characteristic sound while in an attack dive led the Japanese to call it "The Whistling Death." Combined with its high speed, agility and toughness, the Vought F4U Corsair was one of the finest fighters ever built. Originally thought to be too powerful to fly from a carrier, the Corsair weaved a path of destruction in battle after battle during WWII, totally outclassing the much-feared Zero. The last of the great piston-engine fighters, the Corsair went on to become an important component of the US naval air power during the Korean War. Even while it was being replaced by jet aircraft, pilots flying this tough warbird were credited with downing a few MiG-15 jet fighters.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of a Corsair assigned to the US Marine Corps' VMF 351 Squadron and flown by Lt. Colonel Donald K. Yost. Sold Out!
