Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought OS2U-three Kingfisher:
The Kingfisher was the U.S. Navy’s major ship-primarily based, scout and observation aircraft in the course of Globe War II. Revolutionary spot welding tactics gave it a smooth, non-buckling fuselage structure. Deflector plate flaps that hung from the wing’s trailing edge and spoiler-augmented ailerons functioned like further flaps to permit slower landing speeds. Most OS2Us operated in the Pacific, where they rescued a lot of downed airmen, which includes Planet War I ace Eddie Rickenbacker and the crew of his B-17 Flying Fortress.
In March 1942, this airplane was assigned to the battleship USS Indiana. It later underwent a six-month overhaul in California, returned to Pearl Harbor, and rejoined the Indiana in March 1944. Lt. j.g. Rollin M. Batten Jr. was awarded the Navy Cross for producing a daring rescue in this airplane under heavy enemy fire on July 4, 1944.
Transferred from the United States Navy.
