F4U-1A Lt(jg) Tom Killefer VF-17

Recommended Posts

Really great looking Navy Corsair. 


VF-17 was pretty legendary, tamed the Corsair for carrier use, only to be kicked off the Bunker Hill because of supply chain issues... They ended up part of AirSols, flying against the Japanese as we really started going after Rabaul. A few missions, where the Bunker Hill was sending strikes into Rabaul, VF-17 actually landed aboard, refueled and then flew CAP and cover for the Carriers. They had no issues landing their Corsairs aboard after a several month absence.   The model looks like its ready fly cover for CV-17!
