This venerable old Avenger was delivered to the Navy in Nov. 42 and served in the Pacific on board USS Enterprise, USS Saratoga and with VF-12 on Guadalcanal. She was SOC in July 1945 and became a Hollywood film prop before being acquired by Yanks in 1980. She is now undergoing restoration, part of which included removing lots of Japanese 27 mm bullets from her tail!.
