This is the only SB2U extant and was delivered in July 1939, serving in patrol roles until it was transferred to Carrier Qualification Training Unit, Glenview NAS, IL. and assigned to the USS Wolverine (IX-64). It crashed a month later and sunk to the bottom of Lake Michigan, where it stayed until recovery in 1990. After restoration it is now on display at the super National Naval Aviation Museum.
