The unique appearance of the F4U Corsair stemmed from its bent wings, which were necessary to hold up the biggest propeller ever installed, and a very powerful engine. In American War Eagles: F4U Corsair -- Thunder From the Skies, the scrappy fighter plane is scrutinized, and archival footage is used to illustrate its capabilities. The Japanese referred to it as "the Whistling Death," due to the noise from its engine. Many experts agree that the F4U was able to outfight and outmaneuver most planes of the war, and at war's end, it racked up a kill ratio of 11:1 against the enemy. ~ Alice Day, All Movie Guide
