Goodyear, FG-1D Corsair
Whenever I see a Corsair flying at certain angles from a distance, the Inverted gull wing really makes me think this aircraft looks like a bird. I wanted to convey this feeling in a photograph but knew I had to get the angle correct. So I patiently waited for the right moment and when the aspect was right captured what I think is a great view on this World War Two aircraft.
The Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. When the Corsair first flew in 1939 it was the first American aircraft to exceed 400mph in level flight. Operated by the US Navy the type was also operated by a number of other countries including Great Britain and New Zealand. Nicknamed "Whistling Death" by the Japanese, the Corsair helped gain air superiority by the Allies in the Pacific. This example was license built by Goodyear and is a 2000hp Pratt & Whitney radial engine. It is the last airworthy example of over 400 operated by the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF).
