Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
From the "Police Action" in Korea.
Keep McCain away.
The "police action", while technically not actively on going, is still on going. Credit to be given for the longest cease fire in modern history.
I thought the navy didn't like to use the Corsair on carriers, since they were a bitch to land. the nose had to be up to land and the pilot lost sight of the deck.
The Brits figured out the best way to land that bird on a carrier was to side-slip it in....Basically a long-curving final with the carrier deck always in sight alongside the nose..........
I find it interesting that the engine used in the Corsair was also used in the Hellcat and the Thunderbolt. Three dissimilar ways to end up in the same place. Actually, the use gotten out of that engine is quite a story itself. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pratt_%26_Whitney_R-2800_Double_Wasp
Flew AC with R2800s for 5 years. Shut down enough of them that I wouldn't want to be behind a single in a fighter. Of course, when I was flying them in the 70's, they were far from new, but still real happy to get into turbines.
