F4U-4 "Black Sheep Squadron" USMC


Flying eight F4U-4B Corsairs on August 3, 1950, VMF-214 became the first Marine squadron to see action in Korea, when they launched from the USS Sicily (CVE-118) and executed a raid against enemy installations near Inchon. After the F4Us delivered their incendiary bombs and rockets, they followed up with a series of strafing runs.[8][9] Flying from the USS Badoeng Strait (CVE-116) and the USS Boxer (CV-21), the Black Sheep completed two combat tours in Korea. They participated in key battles, including the Inchon landing and the UN's defeat and withdrawal from Chosin Reservoir. In these and others battles, they provided nearly continual air cover, interdicting supply and communication lines, and inflicting heavy damage on numerous ground emplacements, and enemy armor.

f4u marine corsair model December 1, 2012
Reviewer: Cynthia English from Lakeville, MA United States  
i called the number on the web site rather than order on line.  i got poor jack who was on vacation in north carolina.  he was very good in taking my order and making sure it was shipped right away.  i had ordered a corsair model plane for my fiance, he was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  jack had the plane at my door in three days and also added vinnie to his prayer list.
              thanks very much jack !
