A WW II Dauntless in a Horse Pasture?

28 June 2019

A WW II Douglas SBD-2P Dauntless (Number 2173) dive bomber in Taras Lyssenko’s pasture the day before delivery to the Air Zoo restoration works in Kalamazoo. A and T Recovery brought her up from the depths of Lake Michigan. Not the usual thing to be seen—unless you are around Taras and A and T Recovery—Photograph courtesy of Daniel Brant)

    Another triumph for A and T Recovery, Joe. To see such a rare aircraft brought back from the depths is stunning. Kudos to A and T. Ross (formerly, Leicestershire Museums Service and The Science Museum, London)

      Indeed. It ended up there while enroute to the Air Zoo. Not the NNAM since the Navy’s U/W Archeological Section stymied the restoration. Again! So, the Air Zoo stepped up where those public servants failed. More on this story later.
