Chance-Vought wrapped a unique gull-winged airframe around what was then the largest engine available, the Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp. The F4U was the first fighter plane to exceed 400 mph in level flight and was in production longer that any other American propeller driven fighter.
The framed size is 11.5" wide by 8.5" high.
Natural Basswood finish (as pictured) is mounted on a Baltic Blue matte and surrounded by a rich cherry finish frame.
Brass and Steel finishes are mounted on a black matte within a black frame which gives a very contemporary look.
