Photo Comment

Originally US Navy Corsair bu 123168, this aircraft was transferred to Honduras Air Force as FAH-603 in 1956. It was among seven Corsairs returned to the USA as a collection of parts in 1979. Using parts from Bu 122179, the fighter was rebuilt to flying status in 1987-88, but since the original data plate was illegible, the aircraft adopted the identity of bu 122179.
