Really neat! What a great country we live in where something as costly AND important as this can be undertaken. I don't think I've ever seen a "birdcage" version of the corsair other than old film footage.

Salutes to Chuck and his labor of love... The XF4U-1 (birdcage) flew for the first time on 29 May 1940... it was one of our
front line fighters in 1941 and went on to serve in the Koren War...



Apologies for the war time slur "J.a.p"
