The F4U Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service primarily in World War II and the Korean War. It paired a lightweight fuselage with a powerful engine and large propeller. The Corsair served in smaller air forces until the 1960s, following the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in US history (1942–1952). Some Japanese pilots regarded the F4U Corsair as the most formidable American fighter aircraft of World War II.
