Brewster F3A-1 Corsair (*)
F3A-1 (Corsair Mk. III) was the designation for the Brewster-built F4U-1.
Just over 700 were built before Brewster was forced out of business.
Poor production techniques and shabby quality control meant that these aircraft were red-lined for speed and prohibited from aerobatics after several lost their wings.
This was later traced to poor quality wing fittings.
None of the Brewster-built Corsairs reached front line units.
