when it was purchased by pilot Ron Puckett and raced in the 1947 and 1949
National Air Races. BuNo 14694 was a Goodyear FG-1D Corsair converted to a
XF2G-1. Ron Puckett was a Navy test pilot and also familiar with the F2G’s
Ron acquired his F2-G in time to enter the 1947 Thompson Trophy Race with a
stock airplane. At that time #18 still had the original sub-rudder. Ron took
off after all others had completed their first lap due to a problem with an
official. Ron was able to move up to 3rd place, in the nineteenth lap, engine
problems forced him to land. In the 1949 Thompson Trophy Race, Ron came in
second. After the race, Ron sold his F2G to a broker who had a customer for
the R-4360 engine. Ron believes the airplane was scrapped.
