From the United States Postal Service licensed collection, this metal sign has a beautiful rendering of the fighter plane, the F4U Corsair.
The F4U Corsair was the first single-seat fighter to exceed 400 MPH in 1940. Chance Vought's new design would go on to be the best Marine Corps fighter of the Second World War. Named the 'Bent Wing Bird' by the American Navy and Marines, the Japanese had another name for it, 'Whistling Death'.
The Marines loved their Corsairs because they were faster than the F6F Hellcat and able to carry heavier bomb loads. F4U's were used extensively during the island hopping campaigns and amphibious landings.
This metal sign is handmade in the USA using heavy gauge american steel and a process known as sublimation, where the image is baked into a powder coating for a durable and long lasting finish. Sign is drilled and riveted for easy hanging.
•Sign measures 13" x 16"
