The Blackbird’s performance and also functional achievements positioned it at the peak of aeronautics modern technology developments throughout the Cold Battle. This Blackbird built up about 2,800 hrs of flight time throughout 24 years of active solution with the UNITED STATE Flying force. On its last flight, March 6, 1990, Lt. Col. Ed Yielding and also Lt. Col. Joseph Vida established a speed record by flying from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., in 1 hour, 4 mins, and also 20 seconds, balancing 3,418 kilometers (2,124 miles) each hour.

Vought F4U-1D Corsair:
. By V-J Day, September 2, 1945, Corsair pilots had actually amassed an 11:1 kill ratio versus adversary aircraft. The airplane’s distinct upside down gull-wing layout allowed ground clearance for the big, three-bladed
Hamilton Standard Hydromatic prop, which covered greater than 4 meters( 13 feet). The Pratt and also Whitney R-2800 radial engine and also Hydromatic prop was the largest and also among the most powerful engine-propeller mixes ever flown on a competitor airplane. Charles Lindbergh flew battle objectives in a Corsair with Marine Air Team 31 versus Japanese strongholds in the Pacific in 1944.
