Whistling Death

  • A limited edition graphic art print featuring the iconic F4U Corsair one of the most capable carrier-based fighter-bombers of World War II. To avoid drag the intake for the aircraft’s turbo-supercharger, intercooler and oil cooler were located in slots in the inboard leading edges of the wings. Air running through those slots at high speeds gave the aircraft a very distinctive sound, and the Japanese tagged the fighter with the moniker, “Whistling Death.”
