The famous "Number 29" was with the formidable VF-17, Jolly Rogers. Its pilot, Lt. Ira "Ike" Kepford, was the top Naval ace in the Pacific and is credited with 16 victories depicted on the fuselage of this F4U-1 Corsair.

The Corsair is known as “The Sweetheart of the Marianas” and “The Angel of Okinawa”. Those names were given by the ground troops. The F4U was also called the “U-Bird” or “Bent Wing Bird” and the F4U was named by the Japanese as the “Whistling Death” because of the sound it made.

The U.S. Navy didn’t go into combat with the Corsair immediately. They waited until September of 1943. The F4U was accepted by the U.S. Navy for their shipboard operations in April of 1944. The Corsair was flown by the famous Black Sheep Squadron VMF-214 headed by Marine Fighter Ace Maj. Gregory “Pappy” Boyington. Another noted pilot is Ike Kepford.

Ike Kepford had flown the F4U-1 Corsair, the famous “Number 29” with the formidable VF-17, Jolly Rogers.
