First Light Strike
One of the large number of carrier aircraft types deployed by the US Navy in the Pacific, the Avenger was instrumental in the success of many of the anti-carrier missions during WW2, in particular the Battle of Midway. About 2,300 were built with the later types modified to carry radar, 400 were supplied to the RN for their Pacific operations.
The image shows a section of Avengers en-route to their target as the dawn lights up the tropical sky.
Have been interested in photography since just after WW2, when film became freely available again, using Kodak Autographic equipment. Graduated, in the 50's, to 35mm and was involved in photographic work during my 17 yrs as RAF aircrew - navigator. Since retirement and migrating to Canon digital equipment have been involved with two of my sons and one grandson in a considerable amount of photographic activity, particularly composite images. Now producing digital art prints with the major emphasis on classic warbird aviation.
