Connecticut Corsair Helping To Pass A Bill Declaring The F4U Corsair As Official State Aircraft

Connecticut Corsair is working with Senator Doc Gunther to pass a bill declaring the F4U Corsair as the state's official aircraft.  We testified at a hearing on February 10, 2005 in Hartford on behalf of the bill, and provided our five foot wingspan Corsair display model, and Pratt & Whitney, Hamilton Standard and Sikorsky posters as background.  The event is covered on page A8 of the February 11, 2005 Connecticut Post, which you can view here for a limited time. If the story is no longer available, you can find it right here in our News Articles section.

In addition, we are working to have the model put on public display on the main level of the atrium in the Legislative Office Building.  The model will be displayed for several weeks in support of the bill.  The model also appeared in the Connecticut Post.

The bill also intends to declare May 29th 2005 as Corsair Day, commemorating the Corsair's first flight 65 years ago this year, with an annual event at the capitol each year on that date.
