Chino Airshow 2006
Super Corsair


The Super Corsair was built by Goodyear and was designated the F2G. The goal was to have a more powerful Corsair with a good rate of climb. This aircraft variation was built to help counter the Kamikaze threat. Only 14 total Super Corsairs were built and non of them saw combat in WWII. Once on the surplus market, they became very popular in the air racing world. The F2G is powered by a 28-cylinder, 4 row radial Pratt and Whitney R-4360 engine. The F2G featured here was built in 1947 and won the Tinnerman trophy race in 1949. Between 1950 and 1996 it went through a number of owners who wanted to restore it to flyable condition until it was purchased by it's present owner and restoration began. In 1999, it flew once again.
