HELLCATS (45 K)

Hellcats of the Navy ...

   Old Glory whips in the breeze above an unidentified aircraft carrier's flight deck loaded with U.S. Navy Hellcat fighter planes being readied for take-off. Dated September 15, 1943, this was the first photo taken of the Grumman Corporation's new carrier-based plane aboard ship. Associated Press photo, from the webmaster's collection.
