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.

VMO(CVS)-351 became VMF-351 in February 1945 and provided aerial cover for minesweeping and bombing missions in the East China Sea. Aboard the USS Gloucester VMF-351 took part in the Battle of Okinawa from April to June 1945. On July 23, 1945 Lt. Col. Donald K.
