Catching the wire

  1. "But that's an F4U-1A, with the cage canopy! They can't land those on carriers, especially escort carriers like in that picture"*

    *Bullshit I've seen on the internet.

    For the real story of the Corsair and it NOT being on carriers mid-war, see Tommy Blackburn's book on VF-17, the Jolly Rogers.....

    John Condon's Corsairs and Flattops is a good account of Marine Corsairs flying close-support missions from escort carriers late-war....
