Stunning photo of a restored Hellcat in flight. And you see them so seldom with the canopy open as well. From Flight Journal. And you can see why that camo scheme was effective, too.

Note that the F6F was used as a fighter bomber in the ETO, specifically Operation Dragoon, the invasion of the south of France.
