The Vought F4U Corsair was literally built around the Pratt & Whitney 2,000 HP radial engine. The engine was so massive and produced so much energy that a Hamilton Standard 13 feet 4 inch propeller, the largest of WWII, was required. The F4U was the first American fighter aircraft to exceed 400 MPH. The Corsair was referred to by the Japanese as “Whispering Death” and became a legend in its own time. This aircraft was one of the most distinctive designs with it bent wings making it an icon.

Sub Lt. Donald J. Sheppard was a member of the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve (RCNVR) who served with the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm. He was assigned to the 47th Naval Fighter Wing, 1836 Squadron flying a Corsair II. On January 7, 1945 Sheppard shot down two Oscars and later in January he shot down two more aircraft and two shared kills. On May 4 1945 flying 13-6 P JT537 he shot down an Asahi D4Y1 Model 11 Suisei (Judy) making him the only FAA Corsair ace of WWII.
