Grumman Avenger ditched in Florida 17-4-2021

Post by janneman36 »

Yesterday an Avenger of the Valiant air Command ditched close to the shore in Florida during an event.
Everybody is safe and no one hurt after a perfect ditch.
Aircraft involved is N108Q and has been flown since last year Januari after an extensive 18 year restoration.
The aircraft was painted to represent the commanders plane of the disappeared Flight 19 in the Bermuda Triangle ....
I hope the aircraft can be saved..

spotting is just like fishing only less slippery.....
