The revised edition of "Pacific Corsair" is now available. Some photos have been replaced with different ones, some captions and illustrations have been tweaked after receiving new information.
"In the light of Japanese successes following the outbreak of war in the Pacific there was an urgent need to equip the Royal New Zealand Air Force with modern combat aircraft. But this was easier said than done.
Eventually the RNZAF received 424 Corsairs under the Lease Lend program – the largest number of any aircraft type in it's inventory.
This book covers all aspects of the Corsairs service with the RNZAF; training, operational squadrons, the Servicing Units and post war service in Japan."
