See full details

Production Date
A Corsair, flown by the RNZAF in the Pacific, ready for take-off on a bombing sortie. The nose and left side, all of the right wing and part of the left wing are shown. The left wing provides detail on the distinctively bent structure of the wings of this type of plane. The surroundings are hazy, perhaps caused by dust or sand thrown up by the moving propeller. There is vegetation in the background.
