The Corsair F4U was the fastest propeller plane built and used in the tail end of WWII and Korean war. The bent wings and powerful engine built by Vaught in Connecticut, USA distinguished this aircraft from the rest. Made famous by Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington and his Black Sheep squadron's assault on the Japanese where he shot down 28 planes himself. In only 12 weeks of combat, the squadron destroyed 94 enemy fighters and made headlines in the States
