I've read somewhere that the Corsair cockpit is roomier than other WW2 fighters because Vought Chief Test Pilot Lyman Bullard Jr. was a tall man, and Assistant Chief Test Pilot Boone Guyton was a head taller. I'm guessing that influenced the vertical adjustment range of the pilot's seat and rudder pedal adjustment.

In his book "Bax seat", Gordon Baxter tell the story of a Marine pilot over Okinawa who sawed down a Nick with his Corsair when the Corsairs' guns jamed.
