Amazing fighters: A-4 Skyhawk, A-1 Skyraider, F9F Panther, F4U Corsair.

Ciao dear "war birds" fans.
Many bombers and fighters in my collection, many beautiful fighters produced in around 80 years but i have my favourites:
F-14 Tomcat
F-22 Raptor
Su-27/35/37 Flanker/Super Flanker/Terminator
A-6 Intruder
A-10 Thunderbolt II
A-7 Corsair II
A-4 Skyhawk
A-1 Skyraider
F9F Panther
F4U Corsair
Among these i want to add the Aermacchi MB-339 PAN, the airplane of Italian "Frecce Tricolori".

To start i want to share a wonderful A-4 Skyhawk, Marines, VMA-324 "Devildogs".
A light fighter produced by Douglas, first flight in 1954 and some of them operated until 1991 with Kuwait Air Force during Gulf War I.
Almost 40 years of great career, 3.000 fighters produced until 1979.



The model i have is a Marines VMA-324 "Devildogs"

A-1 Skyraider. For me this is one of the most beautiful fighters ever produced. Produced at the end of the WWII was used during Korean and Vietnam wars and retired from service in 1968. Even with a piston engine, replaced by jets, the A-1 has been used by US Navy fighter for 20 years!
Absolutely wonderful!!!

Re: Amazing fighters: A-4 Skyhawk, A-1 Skyraider, F9F Panther, F4U Corsair.

The next marvel is the wonderful is the F4U "Corsair".
Produced by Chance Vought from 1942 to 1952 this fighter was used in the WWII and Korea War and it is considered the best fighter of WWII boarded on aircraft carrier.
