  1. My dad would tell me of times as he was growing up in Winnetka, of hearing them doing training! The flight path was over his house, so he got to see the planes. And every once in awhile, the pontooned plane would fly over (I can't remember it's official name) and he would know that one of the trainees went in the drink LOL.

  2. “…contend with a lack of wind on Lake Michigan…”

    Define ‘lack’, because there’s a funnel cloud in the background during one of these clips.

  3. My Grandfathers TBF1 Avenger was based on this Carrier in 1944 and was one of the aircraft that crashed, it was recovered in 1974 and is now undergoing restoration by my Grandfather
