The F4U Corsair was one of the finest all-round airplanes of WW II. It could be used as a fighter, dive bomber, level bomber, ground-attack machine, or as a reconnaissance aircraft. Superior to every enemy aircraft it encountered, the Corsair overcame the introduction of operational jets, and lived to see the end of the
Korean War, where it was used as a ground support aircraft.
The Peanut has the markings of a Corsair from the carrier USS Bunker Hill. The plans do not show every little detail. For these, look up the three- view in Profile No. 47. However, except for an enlarged stab, the configuration is faithfully reproduced.
