  F4U-1 Corsair Bureau Number 02404  

Aircraft History
Built by Vought. Delivered to the U. S. Navy (USN) as F4U-1 Corsair bureau number 02404.

USN Overseas Aircraft Loss List September 1943 lists this F4U as MIA with pilot Major Jones from VMF-215, take off from Guadalcanal and target Ballale on September 1, 1943. This is incorrect. There was no "Major Jones" lost from any squadron in this theater.
Ted Darcy adds: "That is a bogus entry from the Navy Expended Aircraft Report. Disregard it."
