F2G Super Corsair Racing History

The Goodyear F2G "Super" Corsair was developed by the Goodyear Aircraft Company, using the FG-1/F4U-1 Corsair design as a base, to create a special low-altitude fighter. The plane, registered as NX5588N, went from owner to owner and slowly deteriorated. In 1995, Bob Odegaard found this airplane and quickly made arrangements to purchase it and brought it up to his shop, Odegaard Aviation in Kindred, ND. There they restored it back to airworthy condition, and flew it again in 1999, 50 years since it was last flown. Race 57 LLC is the owner and operator of this rare and beautifully restored Goodyear F2G-1D "Super" Corsair (BuNo 88458). The aircraft was a winner at the 1999 Rolls-Royce Aviation Heritage International and is a regular competitor in the unlimited class at the Reno National Championship Air Races. This airplane was also featured in the movie "Thunder Over Reno".
