Joe Tobul and his son, Jim, purchased this plane in 1981 and began a ten-year restoration process, calling on many of the plane's former pilots for assistance. When restoration was completed, the plane quickly became known as one of the best and most accurate Corsair restorations in the world. Sadly, Joe and his plane were both lost in an accident in November 2002. during a flight to honor war veterans in SC Airshow. Canon D60. Canon 20-35mm lens. 1/750sec. f/8.

Seeing that bad-ass still flying is great. I have photos of N731JT with the CVA21 in Korea while my Father was serving in the NAVY. 416 just happen to be my birthday. I want one even if I have to make one.
