• Tells the story of th 30 year career of an extraordinary plane

The Corsair no doubt appears at the top of the list of mythical aircraft which have left their mark on aviation history. As the author is predominantly an illustrator he has given priority to the illustrations and iconography following with explanations that are deliberately concise but as thorough as possible. His aim was to tell the thirty year story of the Corsair’s extraordinary career from its baptism of fire in the Pacific to the African skies, passing through the Far-East and a less martial, but nonetheless virile, interlude in the colourful and exhilarating world of the Pylon Races. This book, substantially larger than the previous edition published in 2003, does not claim to be exhaustive and is destined as much to the enlightened amateur as to the neophyte, in whom perhaps will appear a new love for the fabulous Bent Wing Bird.
