Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless: Just because it’s Summer.

The Dreamy Dodo

Splendid -and tight- group of war-weary Douglas “Slow But Deadly-3” dive bombers. “Proulimg” around the reefs off Midway Island,1942. The gunners look quite relaxed, with their Brownig MG’s stored and emjoying the wind…. yet “5” seems to have a significant “dent” on its starboard stabilizer.
