Did You Know?
This design is based on the F4U Corsair flown by VMF-451 pilot and USMC “ace-in-day”, Major Archie Donahue.  On May 13, 1943, Donahue engaged in a one-hour-long dogfight west of Florida Island. Donahue possibly became an ace in a day, as he was confirmed to have shot down four Zeros, and probably shot down a fifth. A fellow Marine verified the fifth kill, but Donahue was never credited for it.


On April 12, 1945, Major Donahue finally earned the title of ace in a day, personally shooting down three Vals and two Zekes with his F4U Corsair off the coast of Okinawa. This feat made Donahue the first carrier-based Marine ace in a day. Donahue was awarded the Navy Cross for his actions that day,


He completed 159 combat missions over Guadalcanal and 56 from the deck of the Bunker Hill, with a total of 14 confirmed aerial victories. Donahue retired from the USMC as a colonel in 1958. His military decorations include the Navy Cross, three Distinguished Flying Crosses, and five Air Medals.
