Corsair At The Tauranga Airshow

Corsair FG-1D.  With its 'W' wing form and long powerful nose, the Corsair is one of the most recognisable single engine fighting aircraft born during the 1939-45 conflict.  Built in USA for carrier deck operation, it has a wide-set, sturdy undercarriage with the 'W' wing giving adequate ground clearance for a 4.37m diameter propeller.
