About This File
By the mid-1950's, the entire Corsair fleet was considered "obsolete" and both the Navy and Marines began to phase them out of active squadrons and into scattered Reserve units throughout the country. This AU-1 depicts the LAST ACTIVE MARINE UNIT to operate the AU-1. This was AES-12 (Aircraft Engineering Squadron Twelve) based at MCAS Quantico,Virginia in 1957. It is unusual because it was one of the few examples where the Corsair was around just long enough to receive the new "grey over white" paint scheme the navy mandated in 1956.
