VMF-214 squadron was led by Greg “Pappy” Boyington and because it was comprised of pilots gathered from other squadrons it became known as the “Black Sheep”. Boyington and his pilots earned a reputation as being unconventional on the ground and in the air. On January 3, 1944 as part of a 46 aircraft sortie the “Black Sheep” headed for a fighter sweep of Rabaul with Greg Boyington in command. Boyington shot down a Japanese Zero but his F4U was also shot down and he became a POW until September 1945.

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.
