Here is a selection of beautiful in-flight color photographs of SBC Helldiver aircraft in the overall Light Gray scheme. This scheme was introduced effective 30DEC40 and ended the Yellow Wings era. Blue Gray was added to upper surfaces of carrier-based aircraft types on 20AUG41 so this scheme was only authorized for a short time. The first two pictures show a Helldiver with red cross wargame markings and come from National Air and Space Museum Archives, Hans Groenhoff Photo Collection. The remainder are of SBC-4 Helldivers of VMO-151, a Marine unit which was one of the last operational units on the type. These pictures are from NASM’s Rudy Arnold Photo Collection. Enjoy!
