How about this....the prop on an F4U was about 18 feet in diameter. To keep this enormous prop from hitting the ground, the landing gear would have to be much longer (and weaker) if it were not for the gull wings...strength is crucial when slamming repeatedly onto a carrier deck. My Grandfather still flies his.

11674, My grandfather flew Corsairs in the Pacific theater, and later in Korea. In the 1960's, he located "his" plane in the Phillipines, brought it home, and restored it over an eight year period with the help of a few members of his original crew. He still flies, and is sharper than most guys half his age.

And by the way, 13' 4" is indeed the correct diameter of the prop...I was thinking about the R-2800 radial engines 18 cylinders, and somehow that number stuck.

Will do that, but most all of my pics are film. I do have a CF card with about a dozen recent pictures on it somewhere...I'll post those. He's in the pits at the '98 Reno air races hamming it up with a bunch of old pilots and posing with his plane in most of my pictures.

That would be great. His story might make a great book.

W wing configuration gives low stability hence high maneuverability
