    Aircraft on the USS Wasp after they switched to tail symbols but BEFORE they changed to letter codes. I THINK that the symbol's a horizontal bar with numbers on it, but I can't find any real pictures of planes.

    Thanks!

    A very close examination of this next image may prove somewhat fruitful as well.

    Here's an enlargement of this image. The quality is poor, but sufficient for picking out relevant details.
