In June 1938 the US Navy had a sequence of inflight images taken of VB-3s SB2U-1 Vindiators near Los Angeles, CA. I came across prints of these photos, some well known, others that have not been published as extensively, during a trip to the National Archives College Park, MD. These particular prints were part of the USN's 80-CF image collection.
These images were made when the squadron was about one year since being redesignated VB-3.
The VB-3 aircraft featured in the images are:
BuNo 0739 3-B-13
BuNo 0740 3-B-14
BuNo 0741 3-B-15
VB-3 is in the lineage for the current VFA-14 Tophatters. The Wiki on VFA-14 is here.
