Brewster F2A-3 Buffalo
Tony Weddel. The only combat action involving Buffalos (in U.S. hands) was at the Battle of Midway, where the Marine pilots of VMF-221 flew from the island's airbase and intercepted an incoming Japanese aerial strike. Several Val dive-bombers fell to the Buffalo's guns, but Zeros quickly jumped the Buffalos and most were shot down in the ensuing battle. Buffaloes were then withdrawn from front-line duties and never used by U.S. forces in combat again. 23"x 19" print.

Douglas TBD Devastator
Tony Weddel. TBD Devastators of "USS Yorktown's" VT-5 engage Japanese ships in the Battle of Tulagi, a minor prelude to the Battle of the Coral Sea in May of 1942. In two separate attacks, the TBDs launched a total of 22 torpedoes in Tulagi harbor, but their only success was the sinking of the minesweeper "Tama Maru." This was probably due to the poor quality of the aerial torpedoes, and the inexperience of the American flight crews. 23"x 19" print.
