WELCOMING THE TBD DEVASTATOR
Today, I am excited to discuss Midway’s newest exhibit a very special replica unlike any other in the world…
This September, after months of restoration, the USS Midway Museum welcomed aboard a special replica torpedo aircraft, the TBD Devastator. This near full-sized TBD Devastator replica was originally built for the upcoming motion picture, Midway and will soon be incorporated into the overall presentation of our current Battle of Midway Theater complex which already contains dynamic displays of the F4F Wildcat fighter and SBD Dauntless dive bomber.
