DO NOT BUY THIS DVD FROM ORDERBOX.COM
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I'd love to review this DVD I bought my boyfriend for his birthday, but unfortunately orderbox.com does not ship things you pay them for. I am on a fixed income and could not afford the amazon price so I made an attempt to order from orderbox who supposedly ships in 1-2 days. 10 days later - no tracking number = no shipment = no item = me out of $20 (for this and another DVD in this series). This looks really good - just do not buy from orderbox you will be ripped off."
This F4U Corsair DVD is 4U!

"If you like the Corsair, you'll love this DVD! This DVD has modern color footage of a Chino Planes of Fame F4U-1, a great WWII training film on the F4U, an original Pilot's Handbook, a short movie based on a real pilots F4U experience wich combines both new and WWII footage, and there are photos from a WWII pilots "family Album". I especially liked the training film which goes through step by step proceedures for starting and flying the F4U. There are great shots of the Corsair's cockpit and controls as well as external shots of the plane in flight. The DVD title is superimposed over each page of the Pilot's Handbook, which is a little annoying, but overall I'm very happy with the DVD and would buy it again."
Roaring Glory Warbirds, Vol. 7; Vought F4U Corsair

"This DVD is okay. There are a lot better. There is excellent footage of one museum piece Corsair flying. The narrator is also very good at explaining the preflight and technology behind this aircraft. The attempt to make new footage look old appears cheap and phoney. It is very clear that the actors are not professional; obvious that they are reading a script. This DVD also lacks in providing much historical footage or detail. The little provided is very sketchy and not conclusive. If you are looking for a great DVD on the F4U Corsair you will probably be disappointed in this one."
Must-have for Warbird fans

"This is a terrific video. The DVD version is particularly good in that it includes extra features if you have a PC with a DVD player. The video quality is really good, detailed, and the WWII pilot training film is very interesting. You can pick which part of the video you want to watch, and if you're like me you will watch this film over and over. I have used screen captures to make great wallpaper on my PC. I'm ordering all 6 DVD's, and I wish there were more."
