Does anybody have an idea of the aircraft carrier this Avenger was attached to ?
According to the "G" symbols, it should be the USS Saratoga, but these symbols were applied from January 1945 until August 1945, and there were many other different identifications symbols before January 1945.
For example : the planes attached to the USS Hornet were identified in 1945 by a 4 square checker on the tail and on the wing tip, but in 1944 they were identified by a white circle painted only on the tail. This Avenger doesn't have any ID symbol on the wing tip. Its 3 color painting scheme makes me think this photo was taken in 1944.
Thanks for your help
