F4U-Corsair

The Corsair first flew in May 1940 and could achieve speeds of 440 mph. The F4U Corsair served mainly in the Pacific Theater during WWII. It was fast, versatile, deadly, and one of the finest carrier-based fighters deployed by any navy. It had a “kill-to-loss” ratio of 11 to 1, the highest for any fighter plane of WWII.

Production ended in 1952, making it the longest production run for a U.S. Fighter, with 12,571 built in total.
