The A-24 Banshee was the USAAF variant of the Navy SBD Dauntless dive bomber and the type was heavily involved in the South Pacific in operations against the invading Japanese forces. However, losses were high and the Banshee was regarded by many pilots as too slow, short-ranged and poorly armed to be effective. This example on display at the National Museum of the USAF is actually 42-54582 but is displayed as an airctaft that crashed-landed in Java and subsequently abandoned.
