January 23, 2011 7:11am Loving this photo! My fav WWII fighter. Never missed an episode of Black Sheep Squadron. Led me to read Boyington's autobiography. My dream is to win the lottery to afford one of these...
October 21, 2010 4:49am F4U-4, a bitch to land but once in the air...ya couldnt touch it! I'm a P38 fan myself but salute all that served or supported American values. We are poor lil sheep that have lost or way.....;)
August 01, 2010 7:53pm I read "Fly Boys". A few of the boys whom were protecting the U.S. from the Japenese (with world global dominance on its mind- much like MM) flew the Corsair. A few shot down pilots were carved up and eaten by their drunken captures. These japenese soldiers were not in battle, they were on islands where nothing happens at all- kinda like your town, And then all of the sudden- Americans. On their soil!!!! It was war.
They decimated the soldiers and finally the commandant decided to eat the livers of the men- just to show he was in charge. Had one man dug up and had his liver removed, just to prove he was kewl~~~~~~~~~~~`
September 23, 2009 12:02am Beautiful shot. Reminds me of my Dad taking me to airshows as a kid. We'd always ride in my Grandpa's car, had his Naval officer stickers on it so we wouldn't have to pay and get saluted too.
