Vought F4U Corsair (Osprey)

With over 12,500 produced, the Vought F4U Corsair is one of the icons of mid-20th century military aviation. It was as a Marine Corps aircraft that the Corsair was to become famous, fighting through World War II and Korea.

Vought F4U-4 Corsair Fighter - Pilot's Flight Operation Instructions

One of the most storied aircraft of WWII, the Vought F4U-4 Corsair was the first single engine production aircraft capable of 400 mph in level flight. With its gull wing and giant 18-cylinder Double Wasp engine, it proved a superb fighter in the Pacific campaign and achieved victory ratio approaching 10 to 1.

The exploits of the famed Black Sheep Squadron of Corsairs was recounted by their leader, Marine fighter ace Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, in the book "Baa Baa Black Sheep."

The Handbook of Flight Operating Instructions told pilots everything they needed to know before climbing into the cockpit. Originally classified restricted, the manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form.
This affordable facsimile has been reformatted, and color images appear as black and white. Care has been taken however to preserve the integrity of the text.
