This time on The Green Dot, hosts Chris and Tom are joined by Ben Page, EAA Aviation Museum curator, to speak about the museum’s new exhibit, Corsair: Korean War Heroism. Ben discusses how the museum team uncovered the connection between the museum’s F4U Corsair and one of the most harrowing stories of the Korean War — the story of Thomas Hudner and Jesse Brown, the U.S. Navy’s first Black naval aviator. Hudner and Brown’s story was immortalized in Adam Makos’ book Devotion and the recent major motion picture of the same name.
