Historical Picture

The Grumman TBF Avenger was an American torpedo bomber served during World War II in the Pacific. The Avengers were stationed on aircraft carriers and military airports of the U.S. Navy. The Avenger was developed as a successor to the Douglas TBD-1 "Devastator" which became obsolete around 1939.
The Avenger was built and used as a torpedo-, reconnaissance and small bomber aircraft. It was one of the best aircrafts in the American air fleet during World War Two. As bomber aircraft, the Avenger can be loaded with one torpedo or 1,500 kg bombs load. As a reconnaissanceaircraft, it had a camera and flares on board. The aircraft was, just as the Grumman F4F "Wildcat", firm of construction and relatively protected from bullet impacts for the pilot and his crew.
During an attack include Tulagi, on May 4, 1942, just before the Battle of the Coral Sea, the Japanese "B" invasion fleet was totally destroyed by the Avengers. It was also this type that disappeared over the Bermuda Triangle on December 5, 1945 during a United States Navy overwater navigation training flight from Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All 14 airmen, and the five Avengers of Flight 19, were lost, as were all 13 crew members of a PBM Mariner flying boat assumed by professional investigators to have exploded in mid-air while searching for the flight. Navy investigators could not determine the cause of the loss of Flight 19 but said the aircraft may have become disoriented and ditched in rough seas after running out of fuel and the PBM Mariner flying boat is know as a flying bomb and could explode mid-air during the search.
