The Vought F4U Corsair was literally built around the Pratt & Whitney 2,000 HP radial engine.
The engine was so massive and produced so much energy that a Hamilton Standard 13 feet 4
inch propeller, the largest of WWII, was required. The F4U was the first American fighter aircraft
to exceed 400 MPH. The Corsair was referred to by the Japanese as "Whispering Death" and
became a legend in its own time. This aircraft was one of the most distinctive designs with it
bent wings making it an icon.


In July 1942 John Thomas Blackburn was ordered to organize VGF-29 as the Commanding
Officer. On January 1, 1943 Lt.Cdr John Thomas Blackburn became Commander of the newly
formed VF-17 equipped with F4U-1 Corsairs in April 1943. Blackburn's use of the fearsome
"Jolly Roger" skull and crossbones was to emphasize the daring attitude of his pilots. On
November 8, 1943 six VF-17 Corsairs engaged fifteen Val Dive Bombers and twenty four Zeros
downing three Zeros and damaging four others with no VF-17 losses. Blackburn's final war total
was eleven kills.
