Douglas TBD-1 Devastator

Shown here a TBD-1 Devastator torpedo bomber, probably from Torpedo Squadron Three (VT-3), launched from USS Yorktown at about 0840 hrs, carrying a Mk.XII torpedo, en-route, to attack the Japanese carrier force during the morning of 4 June 1942.

      Great shot, and a sad one too.
      I understand that the TBD's didn't fare well at Midway.
      I wonder if these guys ever made it home.

      Very sad. The odds are that these guys did not survive.
