Great to see NZ5612 (now N43FG in the USA) alive and well at Thunder over Michigan! Unfortunately it isn't in NZ, or in RNZAF markings but it is in great hands and superb condition. It has been finished in the scheme and markings that it would have worn when it was handed over to the RNZAF in 1945. The owner is an awesome guy, very enthusiastic and friendly.
She looks lovely, So good to see another ex RNZAF Corsair take to the skies. I see they have put the later model 2800 in her, I believe they are easier to maintain and dont have all the supercharger ducting in behind them.
Dave, I heard Barry sold her...but I dont know how true that is.
Thanks for taking the time to post such great photos
