Hello Ross.

Thank you very much for your help even I knew some of the links.

My main interest is the military part of Floyd Bennett Field, between 1931 and 1935, with the hope to see some photographs of Curtiss Helldivers, with Codes and maybe which units were there...

Sorry for my English and thank you again.

The question is about the unitsand in particular the one of Floyd Bennett Field which had had the First Helldiver at the beginning of thirties: the Curtiss O2C-1 Helldiver, the First of a serie of 3 or 4 planes which were named Helldiver.

warmest regards.

Re: Floyd Bennett Field

Hello ACESIGGY.

Thank you very much for your info, I already knew this insignia, But I would like to know more about the units which were at Floyd Bennett Field; codes, camouflage, type of aircraft. It seem's these aircraft were used in the first King Kong movie.

All these things to make a profile.

Thank you again for your help.
