USS San Jacinto: TBF Avenger of George HW Bush, VT-51
Its been a while since we have had a president that actually fought in a war. George HW Bush did more than his part, and was a decorated TBF Avenger pilot, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross for his actions, and even survived being shot down and stranded in the ocean. This model shows the flight deck of the San Jacinto in action, getting ready to get LtJG Bush into action, with an F4U escort in the back ground, armed with rockets and a 500lb bomb. The flak guns are 20MM Oerlikons, and a torpedo is being loaded into Bush's TBF...
About this creation

Full view of the flight deck in action



The crew getting a 500Lb bomb ready to be attached to an F4U Corsair

Occasionally, Marine Corps pilots would find themselves on assignment with carriers, either operating off of them or as liason officers. Here a Marine and Navy pilot talk tactics.

Recalling a kill, and sharing it with fellow officers.



20MM Oelikon Gun Crew. Often Marines were the ones manning the gun crews, or were the gunners while Navy Gunner's Mates assisted them.



LtJG George HW Bush having his TBF fitted with a torpedo

Deck tractors were essential in quickly maneuvering the tightly stowed aircraft into launch position. Here the crew is removing the attached tow bar.



Here an ordinance sailor checks the attachment of the F4Us rockets





Flight Deck in action!

Theres always someone cleaning!

Thanks swordsman! Merry Christmas to you as well! I enjoyed making the little section of flight deck, gives me a perspective on how monumental Lego Monsters USS Intrepid truly is!
