Preorder Expected Arrival - AUG 2020

TBD Devastator T-16 was c/n 1506 and was flown by LCDR John Waldron of VT-8 aboard the USS Hornet during the Battle of Midway. On June 4, 1942 the leader of Air Group 8, Stanhope Ring departed the carrier with Wildcats along with VT-8 Devastators to attack Japanese carriers. Upon departure LCDR Waldron realized the assigned group heading was incorrect and tried to get the Wildcats to change direction but was unsuccessful so Waldron got his group of TBDs to follow him. VT-8 found the Japanese carriers but without the Wildcat cover only one crewman survived.
