If you've ever wondered how a fighter aircraft with a huge and noisy radial engine like the WW2 Corsair could end up with a nickname that refers to the whistling noise it makes in a high speed dive this is the video you've been waiting for. Crank up your sound system and listen to the whistle... 

This Goodyear-built FG-1D Corsair of the Old Stick and Rudder Company is shown here during a display at Hood Aerodrome, Masterton, New Zealand.
