F2G Super Corsair Pilot Manual
The Corsair was one of WWII's most superb fighters, achieving a victory ratio of nearly 11:1 in the Pacific. Had things worked out differently, its sister craft, Goodyear's F2G "Super" Corsair, might have eclipsed that record.
Based on Goodyear's fixed-wing F1G design, the F2G had a bubble cockpit and was fitted with a Pratt & Whitney R-4360 engine. The twenty-eight cylinder, four row radial air-cooled monster provided nearly 50% more take-off power than the standard double Wasp. Yet by the close of WWII, only five F2G's had been built, and so the plane never saw combat.
Originally printed by Goodyear and the U.S. Navy, this Flight Handbook taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit.
