Abstract

THE Corsair (U S Navy F4U‐1) is a single‐seater deck‐landing fighter. Like most American ship‐planes it has folding wings. The first single‐seater to be built by this company, its general resemblance in line to the Kingfisher and Chesapeake, particularly in the shape of the tail unit, is quite striking
