The last of the photo set shared by JohnK shows the progress of the restoration of F4U-1 (02465) at National Naval Aviation Museum.

This aircraft crashed in June 1943 in a landing mishap while shooting landings on the carrier Wolverine in Lake Michigan.

This rare birdcage Corsair is undergoing restoration for display hopefully in the next 3 years.
