48 Hours Photo Comp: Corsair

Post by Bernard »

According to the list of subjects (very useful - thank you, Draken), the Corsair has not yet had the honors of a competition. It can be Corsair I or Corsair II.
As usual, no more than three photos.

Hi chaps, sadly don't have any decent Corsair I snaps, so here are IIs.....

Not the clearest, but how many times do you see a pair of these performing.......

And one not in the competition, if this had won the competition to replace the Air Force National Guard A-7Ds, would the afterburning stretched A-7F have become the Corsair III?

Big mistake on my part: I realize that these two planes each deserved their own competition. There were exceptional entries for each plane, but now is the time to choose: my favorite is the second photo from Seamus (FG-1D).
Over to you, Shaun.

I'll have a think and get a new comp up and running in the morning
