Seen here at AirVenture 2005, Corsair Bu. No. 04634 is a rare example of a surviving F3A-1 variant built by Brewster Aeronautical Corporation. Operating from MCAS Cherry Point in North Carolina, the aircraft’s flying days ended when it crashed into a swamp killing the pilot. The Brewster-built Corsairs allegedly had a reputation for poor build quality and none reached front line units. But No. 04634 has become the subject of an ongoing restoration campaign and even boasts its own website.
