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.
