TBF/TBM Avenger (multiple)

TBF Avenger dive bomber examples I have photographed on board the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point and at the Historic Flight Foundation’s Vintage air show at Paine Field. I photographed a third Avenger a the Pima Air Museum, and then a pair of TBM-3 Avengers displayed side-by-side in Madras, Ore.

TBF-1C 47887 (possibly)

Trying to get actual history data, but museum is labeling it a TBM-3E. In 2017 I photographed two Avengers side-by-side at the museum and the other one was a TBM-3E
