Manufactured by Vought, the Corsair was originally deployed by the Royal Navy for carrier operations. The problem was it landed heavy and there were casualties to they modified it by clipping 8 inches off the wing. In addition the canopy and the seat of the pilot were altered allowing it to land much more safely on carriers. Soon after ti was use by the United States Navy in the Pacific theater.
