CANADIANS & THE FAA CORSAIR
February 28 @ 11:30 – 14:30
Royal Canadian Legion Branch 622 Stoney Creek
12 King St. East, Stoney Creek, ON.
Our LWOTM (Last Wednesday of the Month) features a presentation by Cdr (Ret’d) Robert Williamson about Canadians and the Fleet Air Arm Corsair.
Rejected by the U.S.N. and declared totally unsuitable for Carrier use in 1942 by the Royal Navy’s Chief Test Pilot, the Admiralty invested money they could ill afford in creating a flying program and facilities similar to the Canadian BCATP to train colonials to fly the dangerous Chance Vought F4U Corsair.
What was the FAA thinking?
Please pay by ETF using: email@example.com and RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 23rd so we can order the lunch.
