Here are a just a few of the aircraft that have been a part of the Leesburg Airshow.
Grumman TBF Avenger
The Grumman TBF Avenger (designated TBM for aircraft manufactured by General Motors) was a torpedo bomber developed initially for the United States Navy and Marine Corps, and eventually used by several air and naval services around the world. The Avenger entered U.S. service in 1942, and first saw action during the Battle of Midway. Despite the loss of five of the six Avengers on its combat debut, it survived in service to become one of the outstanding torpedo bombers of World War II. Greatly modified after the war, it remained in use until the 1960s.
The aircraft operated by Japanese Bomber, LLC is a 1943 SNJ-4 aircraft that has been modified to resemble the Nakajima “Kate” bomber. Kate is the plane’s Allied reporting name. Nakajima B5N was the standard carrier torpedo bomber of the Imperial Japanese Navy for much of World War II. Primarily a carrier-based aircraft, it was also occasionally used as a land-based bomber. The B5N carried a crew of three: pilot, navigator/bombardier/observer, and radio operator/gunner.
