Retro51 Corsair Fountain Pen. The legendary Vought F4U Corsair was one of the most significant American fighter aircraft of all time. A carrier-based Plane, it was the premier Navy fighter during World War II and the Korean War. The Corsair was the first American-made aircraft to reach 400 miles per hour in level flight. In addition to its large propeller and distinctive bent-wing shape, the plane has a peculiar sound it made at a higher airspeed.

It fills via standard international cartridge/converter and has a smooth-writing JoWo #6 steel nib. It comes packaged in a tube that doubles as a pen stand, along with a converter and two black short standard international ink cartridges.
