FG-1D El Salvador 2



The Chance-Vought F-4U Corsair was developed as a high speed fighter based around the most powerful engine available at the time, the Double Wasp 18 cylinder radial which made the Corsair a 400 mph+ fighter.  

A number of early teething troubles and modifications were dealt with and the Corsair proved to be a successful fighter and ground attack aircraft well after WW2.

The Corsair was armed with 6 x 12.7mm machine guns, or 4 x 20mm cannon and later versions had a provision for rockets and bombs.

This example is an FG-1D (Goodyear-built F4U-1D) of the El Salvador Air Force 1965.
