    If would be awesome if at least one of the TBDs could be recovered for restoration and display at the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, especially as no TBD exists above water anywhere in the world. BTW, the article above mis-labels the Wildcats as F5s, when the designation should be F4F-3.

    Unbelievably clear pictures! Really? From 76 years ago? Seems to me that everything should be completely covered in barnacles by now!
