EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013: Vought Corsair - Bent-Winged Bird and Whistling Death

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo Vought Corsair is a favorite on the airshow and warbird circuits, and EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 had a few on hand to admire on the ground and in the air.  There were several models on hand, including a Goodyear FG-1D and the Chance Vought F4U-4 and F4U-5N variants.  We will also feature some photos from 2012 of the Goodyear F2G Super Corsair racer tragically lost with its pilot, Bob Odegaard, during an aerobatic practice flight September 7,  2012 in Valley City, North Dakota.
