On December 4, 1950 LTJG Thomas “Lou” Hudner, flying a F4U-4 Corsair, and 5 other corsairs from VF-32 departed the USS Leyte to help USMC troops trapped at Chosin Reservoir. When they arrived the enemy had gone but Ensign Jesse L. Brown’s Corsair had a fuel leak caused by small arms fire. He crash landed but he was trapped with a flaming engine. In an attempt to help Brown, Hudner crash landed his White 205 but in vein, Brown died on the scene. Hudner was rescued and two days later both planes and Brown were consumed by napalm.

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.
