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.

NZ5485 BuNo.57473 was shipped from the USA on October 4 1944, assembled and given the code “485” and named “Kohimarama IX”. The aircraft belonged to RNZAF servicing units and were loaned to squadrons for operations. In August 1945 the aircraft was with No.23 (Ghost) Squadron based at Emirau, St. Matthias Islands. Previously NZ5485 was with No.16 and No.14 Squadrons. In October 1945 the aircraft was ferried to New Zealand and put up for sale. On March 2 1948 it to a civilian.
