Vought F4U Corsair - "White 86", Major Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, VMF-214 “Black Sheep” Squadron, USMC, Espiritu Santo, November 1943

1:48 Scale.  Length: 8.25".  Wingspan: 10.25"



Gregory “Pappy” Boyington was a Major in the U.S. Marine Corps and C/O of VMF-214 “Black Sheep” Squadron that accumulated 94 victories, of which 26 were Boyington’s. While publicity photos often show Boyington with aircraft number 86 covered with victory flags, this was not his combat aircraft. In fact, he rarely flew the same aircraft more than a few times. It has been said that he would choose the F4U in the worst shape, so none of his pilots would be afraid of flying their own aircraft. Boyington was awarded the Medal of Honor in March 1944

First flown in May 1940, the F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service during World War II and Korean War. It paired a lightweight fuselage with a powerful engine and a large propeller. The Corsair was operated by some nations air forces until the 1960s following the longest production run of a piston-engined fighter in U.S. history. 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured by Vought, in 16 separate models.
