F4U Corsair "chasing" an F-18 Hornet: Andrew's AFB Open House

Here is a stark photographic contrast of different-era warbirds: a "gullwing" F4U Corsair behind an F-18 Hornet. Though an incredible plane for its time (I'll take one any day!!!) the Corsair would be in fairly bad shape if it had to engage the F-18 in a modern day dogfight for myriad reasons and could be accurately analogized thusly: a miniature Poodle versus a Pit-Bull, "plane" and simple [pardon the pun(s)].

F-15 v. F-18

You are correct.
I will change it.
Good eye and thanks for the note.
