TBM Avenger

SPECIAL:  The Block Island Colors Fly Again

Thanks to the folks at the Heritage Flight Foundation, a TBM-3E Avenger is flying today with the USS Block Island graphic on its tail. Marine squadron VTMB-233 used this paint scheme during some combat operations in the pacific. Click on the video to see the plane in action during the June, 2011 Air National Guard show in Rhode Island.
