Sean and Dodger this Corsair was a night fighter with radar- info from the Collings Foundation website;
In 1952 BuNo 124692 was transferred to VC-3, based aboard the carrier Essex. From November of 1951, through February of 1952. 124692 flew seventy-seven combat hours over Korea in some of the harshest conditions imaginable. Intense cold, frequent storms, and the dangers of combat made this tour extremely difficult. As a -5NL, 124692 saw most of its service as a night fighter, patrolling the black skies in search of enemy aircraft.
