Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
The paint covering that proud warbird is an atrocity.
I agree El-Tee! Pappy Boyington would puke the same color vomit if he saw it.
Looks like a flying ad for Slime.
It should be Tri-Color, or overall Navy Blue. ( Although the Gull Gray over White AU-1s of the 1950's were sharp looking birds!
That's the ugliest blue I ever saw....
What most don't know about the F4U (most block numbers) is that all the control surfaces and 1/3 of the wing covering---is fabric. It was the last "hybrid" fabric and metal aircraft in US service.---Ray
My dad had a Luscombe Silvaire, metal fuselage, fabric wing....I always wondered if that was for weight savings or economy....
Not so...the C123 had fabric-covered control surfaces.
