Corsair at Sun N Fun 2019
Beautiful portrait of Whistling Death.
One of these was in complete, but abandoned, condition back in the late 50s. It was parked in the weeds, so I got to sit in one! (Not a lot of room). In US Marine designations, I believe it was located at Cecil Field, near JAX.
My Fav airplane. Already has my initials on the tail.
Now, that's a sad sight: an orphaned Navy-blue plane having to operate from a land strip because its home carrier has long since been recycled into California bridge supports (https://www.navysite.de/cv/cv45.htm).
....damn Ed Mc, that post made me want to cry....so sad yet so true.
