ANNALS OF THE BREWSTER BUFFALO
There's a gorgeous series of photos at Warbird Information Exchange, lifted from the Life magazine archives. (Get them before they're taken down!) The archives show not only the images that were published, but the outtakes as well. Above, a crew of Malay or Chinese mechanics assemble a Buffalo under the eye of an RAF supervisor.
Maritime archaeologist investigates the landing
gear of a Brewster F2A-3 Buffalo at Midway Atoll. The plane was crashed in
February 1942 by Lt. Charles Somers in a squall.
It lay in ten feet of water for more than seventy years before being spotted
by divers last June, possibly uncovered by the recent tsunami.) More photos
