The First Mass-Produced Corsair|
With a monstrous 2,000 horsepower radial engine driving a massive 4 meter diameter propeller, the Corsair was the first U.S. WWII fighter to break the 400mph speed barrier. The first production corsairs featured a framed canopy that gave it the nickname bird cage, and starting from February 1943, helped turn the tide of the air war in the Pacific theater.
