This Day in Aviation History
August 1st, 1941
XTBF-1 Avenger torpedo bomber makes its first flight.
Wikipedia, Grumman TBF Avenger: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_TBF_Avenger
My source and several other websites have August 1st listed as the day of the first flight. Wikipedia has the 7th listed as the day of the first flight.
Several of the photos used in today’s post are mine. The rest are from Wikipedia.
