ex US Navy 67087, a Goodyear built FG-1D version of the Chance Vought F4U Corsair at the Camarillo Air Show. The purpose of the distinctive gull-shaped wing of the Corsair was to keep the undercarriage legs short to prevent bouncing on a carrier deck, allowing at the same time sufficient ground clearance for the large diameter propeller.
