A four-plane division of US Marine Corps Corsairs of VMF-214, the famous "Black Sheep," turn into a rising sun as they begin an early morning patrol. 9-victory ace and Navy Cross recipient 1Lt. Chris Magee, one of the most colorful fighter pilots in a squadron of strong Type A personalities, is featured in the nearest F4U. I was inspired by Chris's story in the book by his son Robert T. Reed, "Lost Black Sheep - The Search for WWII Ace Chris Magee."
