I just knew I would be happy here! These are the best photos of the interior of an Avenger I have seen! (protected childhood)

Great pix & thanx for posting them!

I'd hoped for more shots of the Grumman employees who made it all happen. My father worked at Grumman prior to Pearl Harbor installing radio equipment in fighters.

Fantastic photos, it certainly gives a taste of the history involved in producing the aircraft. I visit the site often.

Thank you.

I am new to WIX. Thank you for posting these photographs. Three generations of my family worked at Grumman. My Great Grandfather Rufus Pursel (employee #25), my Grandfather Amos Purcell (1940-1974) Bethpage and Calverton Flight Test, and my father Dick Purcell (for short time then U.S. Air Force) Also had Uncle and Aunt who worked at Bethpage (Bobby and Gloria Geist). I really appreciate the photograph collection. Hope to see more in the future. Merry Christmas.

Hello all,

We all are aware of the Photobucket disaster. Not much to be done about that. However, I am in the process of restoring this amazing thread, but it will take time. I have restored page 53 (300 images) as the first stage of this restoration. The image will be hosted on the Warbirds Resource Group servers so they will be there for the lifetime of the site an will not disappear again.

Please have patience as this is horribly time consuming and will take awhile to complete.

BRAVO Scott !
I know I appreciate your efforts, Thanks.
I have a similar problem, I had 24 pages worth of images (over 800) wiped out on the SEAWINGS Flying Boat forum and have to redo all of those after I find a new hosting site.
Keep fighting the good fight.

Whew, that was a learning experience. Photobucket can #@$%#$ all the way off. I have gone thru 57 pages of posts and restored around 80% of the images. Those that are not replace will show up with the word "image". AJ is sending me the original files and I will plug the missing images in when that happens.

With that said... OMG this is an amazing and important thread. I had forgotten how wonderful this thread was and the process of checking every single picture has left me in awe. First off I want to thank Leo Polaski, without his efforts this would not have been a possibility. Second, I want to thank ArmyJunk for spending and immense amount of time and resources to bring these images to us.

This thread is an amazing resource and now that the images are on the WIX servers, it will forever have a home here.

Thank you to everyone who commented and appreciated this thread.
