Lt Cdr Oscar William Erickson USNavy KIFA 5 Nov 1931

Lt Cdr Oscar William Erickson was the commander of Scouting Squadron VS-2B squadron of the U. S. S. Saratoga.

At this time U. S. S. Saratoga was stationed at San Diego, California. He was the pilot of an aircraft that took off to fly a target gunnery mission. He was flying with George H. Cummings, aviation pilot, first class. The plane crashed into the water in San Diego harbor as he attempted a landing on the carrier.
While Cunnings survived Erickson did not. He is buried at Rose Hill Burial Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, USA


I assume he was flying a Vought Corsair O2U-1/-2 but can anyone supply a serial ?

Thanks Paul
