The F4U-1A Corsair first flew in 1940. It had a massive engine which required a larger than normal propeller. To preserve the structural strength of the landing gear and control-ability in landing, it was designed with the distinctive gull wing, thereby placing the body of the plane in a higher position to accommodate the propeller. Another unique feature was how these wings could fold-up so it took up less room on an aircraft carrier.
