F4U Corsair – Florida International Airshow

They had one of my favorite warbirds at the Airshow this year.  The F4U Corsair.  It was on static display and flew with the B-25s Panchito and Killer Bee in the simulated ground attack runs.

The shooting was tough since the wind meant using a slightly different angle of approach than other  years and that affected the  sun angle on passing shots.  Here are a couple more of the F4U.  The first shows the distinctive wing shape of the Corsair and the other the pilot before take off.  Just click for a larger view.

   

The aircraft has it’s own website at KoreanWarHero.com

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
