Goodyear Corsair F4U, piloted by Gene De Marco lands on 29 while the unfortunate Fokker Triplane lies on her back after tripping on the landing approach during Thursday's practice.
"In March of 1944, Pratt & Whitney requested a F4U-1 Corsair from Vought Aircraft for evaluation of their new P&W R-4360,28 cylinder engine. Vought transferred F4U-1, BuNo 02460 (Birdcage Canopy) to see if the airframe and engine were compatible. The tests proved successful and Goodyear Aircraft of Akron, Ohio was given the F2G program.
