American War Eagles: F4U Corsair: Thunder from the Skies. The Corsair is
regarded as one of the greatest warplanes in history. Designed to fly behind the
most powerful engine and biggest propeller of any fighter in existence,
the prototype was the first U.S. combat aircraft to exceed 400 mph. Once the
U.S. Navy adopted the Corsair as a ship-board fighter-bomber, they operated in
the Pacific Fleet and established a kill ratio of 11:1 against Japanese
The Vought F4U Corsair carried out 64,051 missions, during which 2,140 enemy
aircraft were destroyed in combat with only 189 Corsair losses - an incredible
success ratio of 11:1.

Here for More F4U Corsair Books
a fantastic book, I have one myself, C. Jeff Dyrek, webmaster
Captain Peterson flew in both WW2 and the Korean War in the Corsairs. Before becoming a pilot and an officer, he was a seaman on a ship that was sunk by the Japanese. He came back to the states and heard about flight school. He applied for the school and then became an officer and a flew these great aircraft. I have spoken to Captain Peterson several times and he is a real nice person. He told me the story of his friend who flew in the corsairs in WW2, the Korean War, then flew another plane in the Viet Nam War. The book really is fantastic with great pictures and great stories.
