Corsair cockpit #1203

Dive O‘ahu says "An advanced dive setting in about 105 feet [32 m] of water, the Corsair is the only wreck visited by divers in Hawaii that was not intentionally sunk. While on a training mission off the coast of Hawaii Kai in 1946, the pilot ran out of fuel and safely bailed out, leaving the plane to rest on the sandy bottom." Wikipedia says that the [Chance Vought F4U] Corsair "served in some air forces until the 1960s, following the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in history (1940–1953)."
