Vought FG-1D Corsair (NZ5648) on the flightline at the Coventry Airshow in May 2003. This is one of the Breitling fighters, operated by the Old Flying Machine Company at Duxford, and is the last airworthy example of a New Zealand Corsair. It's recently updated paintwork is that of the US Navy's VF-17 ('Jolly Rogers'). This squadron had a fearsome record in the pacific theatre. Previously the Corsair was painted in the markings of the New Zealand Air Force.
