The F4U Corsair was a single-engine aircraft. It was conceived to be using the most powerful engine and the largest propeller a fighter aircraft ever had. The long propeller blades caused ground clearance problems, while the “W” shaped wings helped reduce the length required for the landing gear to provide good visibility on the sides. The F4U Corsair was called the “Ensign Eliminator”, a strong engine torque which didn’t make it an easy plane to land.

The F4U Corsair aircraft went into production in 1942. There were different World War II aircraft variants and the F4U-1D Corsair was one of them. The F4U-1D was a fighter aircraft that served the US Navy during World War II and Korean War. It became the first United States single-engine production aircraft that was capable of reaching 400 mph. The F4U-1D was built in parallel with the F4U-1C, a variant that was in production in 1943 but entered the service in 1945.

The F4U-1D Corsair was introduced in 1944. It was the Fighter-Bomber variant because compared to other variants it had a double payload of rockets which was exactly what the US Navy needed. It weighs 4100 kg/9040 lbs when empty and 6400 kg/14100 lbs when full; its engine is Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp, 18 cylinders and power of 2200 hp; the aircraft’s armament is 6 x 12.7 mm (.50cal) machine guns in the wings; and max speed of 635 km/h and ceiling of 11280 m.
