Answering the Call
‘Special Delivery from ‘Lucifer’s Messengers, VMF-251’
by Antonis Karidis
An FG-1D Corsair, belonging to VMF-251 “’Lucifer’s Messengers” receives a call for close air support for Marines battling Japanese forces in the Pacific in early 1945. VMF 251 distinguished itself throughout WW II and continues that illustrious legacy today as it goes thru conversion training, going from the FA-18 Super Hornet to the new F-35B.
Proceeds from the sale of prints help us in our restoration efforts.
The Selfridge Military Air Museum is working on a major fund-raising campaign for some long-needed infrastructure improvements, the most important a ‘new home’ for the FG-1D Corsair that is currently undergoing extensive restoration and our beloved T-6 ‘Texan’, which we’d like to get out of our Michigan weather.
The Corsair is currently being restored by our restoration team. Please help, if you can!
