I do not know much of American histories, and fine details of their many wars thought outside their country even less. So I cannot tell how important this airplane was and what stories it could tell.
I can still appreciate it, though.
The Eastern Iowa Air show, if ever happens again, will become my favorite. You don’t get many chances to photograph air shows in the evening, right around sunset. And take images like this, with colorful sky and gracefully passing vintage aircraft, this beautiful Vought F4U-5N Corsair. And a contrail, as if the two planes were racing each other, not even realizing the other presence.
