Description: The Vought F-4U Corsair was a single seater American fighter aircraft which saw service primarily in World War II as a carrier-based machine. This airframe was based on the carrier USS Gilbert Islands - a Commencement-Bay class escort carrier of the US Navy. She was diverted from manoeuvres off Hawaii in April 1945 and deployed with an escort carrier force whose task was to close Okinawa. Aboard were her fleet of Vought F-4U Corsairs and the US Marine Corps VMF-512 Squadron.
Although not a lot is known about the pilots who flew 'The Mad Cossack', one was Lt Ron Spjeldet, who lived until he was 93 years old and went on to fight in the Korean War in the early 1950s.
