In all honesty the Corsair was rather homely too...
I'll add on one other question for you military aviation buffs. The Army Air Corps flew the P-51 in the Pacific Theater and it did as well against the Japanese as it did in Europe. Did F4U's of the U.S. Navy or Royal Navy ever engage if air combat with the Luftwaffe fighters? I've never been able to find a reference on that.
Let not the rifles of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots.
