C-V F4U-1 Corsair: “Ensign Eliminator”.

The Corsair was, by far, US.Navy hottest thing on wings when it entered service, but that didn’t come easily. It was not an aircraft for the timid or the clumsy and inexperienced pilots -read ensigns- paid dearly. Landings on a carrier was never a thing to underestimate at its controls. They sure needed “The Finest…Fittest…Fightingest…”

Stupendous piece of recruiting art. Smooth-talking in process.
