F6F-5 White 115 "Death And Destruction" BuNo 72534 Serial 115 VF-83 Uss Essex 5th of May 1945 Flown by the Trio of Aces Ensigns Donald McPherson, Bill Kingston Jr., and Lyttleton Ward. Carrying gawdy nose art and a victory tally of nine kills, BuNo 72534 was arguably the most recongisable Hellcat aborad Essex in the last months of the War. The fighters greatest day came on 4th May 1945 when it was used by Ward to down three 'Alfs' and a 'Oscar' as VF-83 helped repel one of the biggest Kamikaze raids launced at TF-58 during the Okinawan invasion.

Blank and no Marking too.

My book does have a Pic with 2 birds from VF-17 (one a late build -3 still in 3 tone paint), and is on my list of Cats to do. I've got one more Cat forth coming then I'm going to do a 2pac of VF-17.
