Thanks, @a mentor. You are correct that with the CORS type code FA will display the aircraft as a VOUGHT-SIKORSKY V-166 Corsair. Quoting from Wikipedia, "In June 1938, the U.S. Navy signed a contract with Vought for a prototype bearing the factory designation V-166B,[13] the XF4U-1, BuNo 1443." However, the only ICAO Aircraft Type Code that I can find for ANY Corsair is: CORS. If you want FA to recognize it as a Corsair - any Corsair - you need to enter that code. (Unless someone knows another code that will work.) Then you can always be more specific as to the actual variant in the caption to the picture. There has been, and continues to be, a lot of frustration with FA as to the nomenclature FA uses for various ICAO codes. It rarely reflects the specific aircraft being displayed. It seems that ICAO does not usually come up with a new type code for each variant of one aircraft type, especially older aircraft types like the Corsair. (I know there are exceptions such as some airliners, e.g. B734, B735, etc.) So, generally, there is one code for one aircraft type. And in this case the V-166 was the very first of a long line of Corsair variants, so at least it makes some sense. Thanks, again. And keep up the good work, Hawk!

So, it actually had 6 engines? Take-off? Cruise? or all the time?

This is clearly an F-18E. The photoshop charge was made by someone who is obviously not at true plane spotter. Pay attention to the details!

Jean-Yves: the backgrounds of the photos you linked are very obviously different from Patrick's photo as well as each other. Additionally, Patrick's photo is of a F/A-18E Super Hornet, first flown in the 2020 season. The photos linked are clearly of the older F/A-18A. Is it surprising that others have photographed this part of the routine in previous years?

The FG-1D, built by Goodyear, is powered by a P&W R-2800 engine. The F2G-1 & -2 was powered by a P&W R-4360 engine, and this variant was the 'Super Corsair'. I sadly saw an F2G crash at the 1994 Phoenix Air Races - pilot got out OK.

I'm thinking the squadron called out was a typo. It was probably VP-67, the reserve squadron from NAS Memphis, they flew P-2s till the late '70s. The were in P-3As when I got NATTC Memphis in the fall of 1979.

I agree wholeheartedly William. Those were the days when passengers dressed to look their best. Nowadays pajamas and flip flops are the norm.

Easily one of the top ten (maybe top five!) liveries to ever grace an airliner.

@Diana Rose
Here is some info that I have gleaned over the years. The particulars are borrowed
from the Los Angeles VFR Terminal Area Chart.
There are several special ATC routes that pass close to KLAX, but there are
specifically two that can provide a private pilot (and pax) in their Cessna et. al.
with spectacular "up-close" views of ops at KLAX. All of these routes fly southeast
to northwest.

First is named the "Mini Route". This is VFR only and is restricted to "non-turbojet
aircraft only". This route will take you over the numbers of KLAX rwy 24L at 2500 feet. This route is subject to ATC clearance.

Second is named the "Los Angeles Special Flight Rules Area". This too will take you over KLAX, and is not subject to ATC authorization. This route is also restricted to
"non-turbojet aircraft only", and "Maximum Indicated Airspeed shall not exceed
140 knots". Aircraft heading southeast are restricted to 3500 feet, and northwest
bound aircraft are restricted to 4500 feet.

It's well-known that Singapore is meticulously squeaky clean (or at least tries hard
to be so).
It's logical to think that their Air Force aircraft would be also!

Wow!

Written on 23.10.2021 by Bill Moore

sorry there @Greg; the CORS type entry on FA is entirely misleading giving a blueprint model number as an a/c type (V-166) -- the given F4U is more accurate and the F2G would be even more precise.

Yes, reminds me of the days when jet travel was respected and people were proud to be part of the list of passengers that were flying to and fro in such luxury…

Nice plane at air shows! From a military point of view it's not a practical aircraft. Fuel load vs. payload vs. runway length needed to get off ground effect and be able to go any distance. And no air refueling ability. Still a beautiful plane!

Written on 23.10.2021 by Robin Rebhan

Also they probably use them for show since Singapore's not a hot bed of conflict lately.
