Overview
 
Steve Ginter with Joe Weathers Jr; Naval Fighters 106. The Vought SB2U Vindicator Scout Bomber was the Navy’s second production carrier monoplane to fly after the Douglas TBD and for a time was the fastest aircraft in the Navy’s inventory. The extremely clean aircraft was a unique blend of the old stick-and-rudder fabric covered construction and that of the new all-metal monoplanes that followed. About half the aircraft was metal skinned and half fabric covered and each fuselage structure was individually hand made from steel tubing.
This book has extensive first person narrative from Vought test pilots and USN/USMC pilots as well as the French V-156-F commander gathered by Joe Weathers in 1966 through 1974 when their minds were still sharp and their memories strong. All of which are gone today. Illustrated with 89 color photos, over 500 black/white photos and line drawings; 248-pages.
