    TBD-1 Devastator VT-2 Texture

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Skins - American

    Description: Repaint of the stock/OH TBD-1 Devastator. TBD-1 Devastator from VT-2 (Torpedo Squadron) of the USS Lexington (CV-2) in 1942. In 2018 Paul G. Allen and his research team photographed this Devastator on the sea floor in surprisingly well shape along with other aircraft from the Lexington. In 2023 there has been a recovery proposal to bring up aircraft from the Lexington including a TBD Devastator.

    Hi Allen
    Thanks for the TBD.
    Looking good.
    It will be interesting to see how the salvage goes.

    I don't understand the Navies' seeming position on making it so difficult to recover these historically important aircraft!?
    Do not fear the enemy, for they can take only your life. Fear the media far more, for they will destroy your honour.
