Grumman F4F Wildcat

Shown here is a F4F Wildcat whos inexperienced pilot failed to counter-act his Wildcat's built-in swing on take-off, as it veered to starboard and tried to demolish a 40 mm Bofors AA gun and its crew, with inevitable results. Note that the the gunner's 'battle bowler ' has been knocked-off and can be seen flying thorough the air.
