2018 pictures of USS lexington aircraft

RV Petrel found the WWII aircraft carrier and planes more than 3,000 meters (nearly 2 miles) below the Coral Sea near Australia.
We remember her brave crew who helped secure first strategic American victory in the Pacific Theater

VF-3 was on board the Lex for Coral Sea, and Felix was their squadron emblem, seen clearly on the forward fuselage. The number appears to be F-5, meaning this plane would have been flow by Ensign Dale W. Peterson during that fateful period. "(The First Team", Lundstrom, p. 107)
