    I've looked all over the net and I simply cannot find more than a couple F4U-4 units that served during WWII (before August 15, 1945). 95% if the pics I find of the F4U-4 are Korean War Corsairs.

    If anyone has pictures of F4U-4's serving operationally in either Marine or Navy units before that August 15, 1945, I'd like to see them. If anyone has a list of Marine or Navy units with which the F4U-4 operationally served before that date, I'd appreciate such a list as well.

    Thanks!

    Wow awesome. Thanks so much. Hopefully I'll be able to find some good pictures of F4U-4s from these units.

    If anyone has more info/pictures, keep 'em coming!
