1941 CV-5 Yorktown aircraft photos needed

Recommended Posts

It is said that during the Neutrality Patrol Atlantic deployments between 20 April and 2 December 1941 the VS-5 squadron on board of CV-5 Yorktown used a mixed bag of SBD-2 Dauntless and SNJ-3 Texan scouts. Has anybody ever seen the gray-painted SNJ-3 sporting 5-S-... fuselage codes? Were these aircraft hook-equipped SNJ-3Cs or "plain" SNJ-3s with no arrester gear?

Cheers

Michael

Thank you PF for the Bluejacket link (Wings-Aviation has been known to me for a long time). 

Now I see that a new query should be started comprising the SNJ-3s from VT-6 (Enterprise), VF-8 (Hornet), VF-41 (Ranger) and VF-72 (Wasp) too 🙄

Cheers

Michael

Hi,

I had never realized that the SNJs were posted to carriers until I saw your post.  I'm interested to see if there are any photos out there as well.

Best of luck with your search

Pat
