Jesse L. Brown was the first black aviator in the US Navy. He received his wings in October 1948 and served during the Korean War. He flew the Vought F4U Corsair, which was a carrier-based fighter aircraft used by the United States Navy and Marine Corps during World War II and the Korean War. The Corsair was known for its distinctive gull-wing design and excellent performance.
The movie Devotion, released in 2022, and based on the 2015 book ‘Devotion: An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship, and Sacrifice’ by Adam Makos, depicts the comradeship between naval officers Jesse Brown and Tom Hudner during the Korean War.
