One of our favorite videographer, Greg Jacek from Unique Photo and Video, returns to share video of a helmet cam in a F4U Corsair. We love the 4k HD footage taken from the historic aircraft. Fly along with the 10th Corsair in formation at Thunder Over Michigan 2019. This
year’s airshow brought eleven F4U Corsairs from around the country to one location. Special Thanks to the Pilot and Wings of the North Museum for taking the camera along for a ride. Climb aboard and enjoy the ride.
About the F4U Corsair
The F4U Corsair began service in 1943 as a carrier based fighter/bomber for the United States Navy and Marines. Corsairs were deployed during World War II and later served in the Korean War. Chance Vought manufactured several variations of the Corsair, including the F4U-4 showcased in the video. The F4U-4 was an upgraded aircraft providing a more powerful 2,450 Horsepower Pratt & Whitney R-2800-18W Engine. The Corsair’s distinctive design traits include a substantial 13-foot propeller and angled folding wings for storage on aircraft carriers. The Wings of the North Air Museum, has complied a detailed history of the aircraft, be sure to check out their link below (wotn.org).
