#1 Super Corsair Signed By Artist Kissinger And Pilots

Description:

Number 1, Super Corsair - “Chino Kid”, Jim Maloney, was the prime mover in the development of the Super Corsair race plane. Near the end of WW II, the Chance Vought Corporation had produced a. a total of 18 new F2G Super Corsair fighters, all powered by the massive Pratt and Whitney 4360 engine, which was, and still is, the largest aircraft piston engine ever built. Unfortunately, problems were encountered in the program and it was cancelled. After the War, a few enterprising individuals purchased some of these aircraft. The intent was to race these brutes at the Cleveland Air Races, which had resumed immediately after the war. Ex Navy fighter pilot, Cook Cleland, brought three Super Corsairs to Cleveland in 1947, and finished as the overall winner in the one he was flying. In 1948, air scoop problems forced him out of the race. Cleland and his F2-G regained the Championship Crown in 1949. However, due to the crash of the highly modified Mustang Beguine, which took the life of pilot Bill Odom, along with that of a mother and her child on the ground, the Cleveland Air Races were permanently cancelled. Fast forward to late 1981 where Jim Maloney, and fellow “Chino Kid”/ex-Red Baron pilot, Steve Hinton, begin toying with the idea of creating a modern version of the Super Corsair for the Unlimited Class. With the aid of Lockheed engineers Pete Law and Bruce Boland, the project is completed in time for the 1982 Reno Air Races.
