Complete 1940's 3-bladed Hamilton Standard (made under license by Nash Kelvinator) Goodyear Super Corsair XF2G-1 early experimental propeller (since most of these propellers were 4-bladed its very possible this was used on the BuNo 14091-XF2G-1)
In March of 1944, Pratt & Whitney requested a F4U-1 Corsair from Vought Aircraft
for evaluation of their new P&W R-4360,28 cylinder engine. Vought transferred F4U-1,
BuNo 02460 (Birdcage Canopy) to see if the airframe and engine were compatible.
The tests proved successful and Goodyear Aircraft of Akron, Ohio was given the
F2G program. (Source: N. Veronico "F4U Corsair" - B. Kinzey "F4U Corsair Vol.1
