Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless

Shown here is a group of SBD-3 Dauntlesses lining-up ready for take-off prior to another mission. Note that the runway is made of interlocking pieces of PSP (Pierced Steel Planking), also called Marston Matting. this gave the runways a solid surface when the ground turned to mud.
