That was a cool addition Dustin. Photo of Marine aircrew member from VMB-443 is killer.

 

Here is another photo of VMF-222 pilot - Captain Archibald Wayne Melton with probably a E-17 kit (or E3j? hard to say in 100%).

 

Cheers,

Jerry

Where are the USAAF images?

I'm tempted to put a reward, lol, they are just seemingly nonexistent.

Sometime ago a I requested a copy of an image from a forum member that had a USAAF fighter pilot wearing one, it was one from a photo album they had recently obtained. Now, for the life of me, I cannot find were I copied it to nor whom the member was.

 

Obviously, now, we have substantially proven the E-17 use by Navy and Marines. It has now graduated to...yeah, yeah, seen it!

 

I do find it mildly amazing that something so conspicuous and procured in fairly large quantities, can be so elusive.

Last photo is with F4U in a background. It can be also a VMF-512 which Adam also well documented on his site. From another hand VMF-512 was not land based.

 

I did not remember these pics on his site... they are new to me! Thanks.
