This book has a nice collection of Fred Blechman's personal stories flying the Corsair (F4U-5, a later variant not used during WW2, but of that used during the early 50s) along with other stories of pilots he knew or heard about. His story "Terror at 100 Feet!" is worth the read in my opinion.

I met Fred Blechman, a Tophatter from VF-14, just 2 weeks before he died. He was a great guy to talk to, enjoyed a good laugh and obviously loved flying. I'll never forget what he told me in regards to any
