Vought F4U-5 Corsair at RAAF Williams Point Cook, Victoria

Point4

From time to time the RAAF Museum at Point Cook have flying displays. Last Sunday a WW2 F4U-5 Vought Corsair was flying. Aerobatics, no less. The plane has folding wings, which probably gave the original pilots some hairy moments. There were a lot of people watching the display and it was a glorious day for it.

Don’t ask me what the other planes are. He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers would know. The speck in the sky in the picture below may or may not be the Corsair, I forget. Sorry.

This plane is from the RMIT Flying School. I do know that flying in a plane with the wings above the passenger bit is lovely, because when you look down at the ground there are no wings in the way. It was also a lovely day for a picnic. S and I took a book.
