Sea Wings: The Avenger

Development of the TBF and TBM Avenger Torpedo Bomber; TBF by Grumman Aircraft, TBM by General Motors. GM was contracted to build this plane, as Grumman needed all of its resources to produce their F6F Hellcat fighter.  The video includes actions in which this aircraft took part, and recollections from former president George Herbert Walker Bush, who was an Avenger pilot during WW II.
