Banana River Naval Air Station

Recommended Posts



To the best of my knowledge the above image of the duck in the water eating a banana is not the Disney design for the Banana River Naval Air Station.


The design below is the one created by Disney artist Van Kaufman for the NAS in the Spring of 1942.

The above black-and-white image is one of many dozen contained in a scrapbook that Van kept during the war of emblems he created.

Wanted: Disney World War II related items.
