Grumman (General Motors) TBM-3E Avenger

@ Joint Base Andrews, MD

May 2011

This Avenger was photographed during my visit to the 2011 Andrews AFB Joint Services Open House.  Grumman outsourced the production of this classic design in 1943 to General Motors. Avengers manufactured by GM were designated TBM.  First flown in 1941, the Avenger served various countries as late as 1960.  Actor Paul Newman was a rear gunner in one during the war.  Nikon D300 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.
