The Vought Chance F4U Corsair est un avion militaire, fabriqué par les États-Unis, utilisé de la Seconde Guerre mondiale jusqu’en 1968. C’est l’un des appareils les plus connus de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, notamment grâce à la série télévisée Les Têtes brûlées. Il s’illustra essentiellement dans le Pacifique, servant à la fois au sein de l’US Navy et de l’US Marine Corps. Le Corsair was mainly deployed during the Pacific campaigns to fight the new enemy of the Imperial Japanese Army from 1943. Between April 7 and 30, 1945, the Corsair was deployed to 305 aircraft by the U.S. Navy for the Battle of Okinawa, with the support of 192 other Marine Corps Corsairs. Out of 600 missions, these units won 124 victories, making the Corsair a legendary aircraft and nicknamed "Sweetheart of Okinawa". In total, the aircraft had more than 2,140 victories, making it the second most credited aircraft in the Pacific, and only 189 aircraft were shot down in air combat.
