Whistling Death

Whistling Death

The Vought F4U Corsair is one of the artist’s favorite aircraft and was used by the Allies during World War II primarily in the Pacific Theatre.  The Japanese dubbed it the “Whistling Death” because of the distinctive sound it made when diving down on its target.  The Corsairs were still in use in the Korean War as well. 

There were no reproductive prints made of this painting. 

The original painting (oil on canvas) measures 20”x20” and is in the collection of NetJets, Inc.
