Douglas SBD-4 Dauntless



Taken at the RNZAF museum, Christchurch. 7 April, 1998. The wreckage of '37' is displayed 'as found'. Note the US marking on the fuselage. The blue of the overpainted RNZAF roundel has weathered away, but the yellow edge remains. The forward fuselage, and wing (with distinctive dive-brakes) can be seen in this view.
