• World War II in Color


    Two Grumman TBM-1 Avengers sent to Britain under Lend Lease to become Tarpons of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm. The Avenger entered U.S. service in 1942, and first saw action during the Battle of Midway. Despite losing five of the six Avengers on its combat debut, it survived in service to become one of the outstanding torpedo bombers of WW2. Greatly modified after the war, it remained in use until the 1960's.
