It’s Tuesday, Oppo. Time to gear up and get going.
This morning we have what looks like a factory fresh Vought F4U-1 Corsair, identifiable by the early “birdcage” canopy. The F4U-1A introduced a taller canopy with just two frames, while the single-piece “blown” clear-view canopy didn’t show up until the F4U-1D in April 1944. The early blue over grey camouflage pattern, and the plain white star roundel, lacking bars on either side, place this aircraft sometime between May 1942 and June 1943.
