F4U is my favorite. Glad to see another old workhorse being given the good treatment, no matter the nationality.

Fernando Soto in 1970 atop his Honduran Corsair, with symbols marking his victories. The aircraft is now in the Honduras air museum, which keeps it in running (but not flying) condition. (Fundación Museo del Aire de Honduras)





It was known as the Soccer War because El Salvador invaded Honduras after several soccer matches between their national teams ended in riots. But the games were played well after the Salvadoran government began planning their invasion of Honduras.

Some say the Salvadoran military was seduced by Israel's Six-Day War victory and thought they could accomplish the same. They even incorporated elements of that campaign into their own invasion plan.

I once had a beer with the Canadian who sold both sides replacement aircraft. He later went on to work as an advisor to Pappa Doc and Baby Doc. A charming but somewhat dubious character.
