First flown from bases on Guadacanal and the Solomon Islands, the Corsair proved effective against Japanese aircraft. First flown from aircraft carriers by the British Navy, the Corsair became the mainstay of the US Navy's carrier airfleet. In production from 1942 to 1953 the Corsair had the longest production run of any single engine US fighter in history.
