A photo of the USS Essex's flight deck with a couple squadrons of F6F Hellcats on deck.
I still find it amazing that they could store all those aircraft on the flight deck. The folding wings were critical for carrier operations. Sometimes they'd have nearly that many planes on deck and still launch aircraft! I'm glad you showed us a picture in color. They did a lot of converting in the WWII in HD series to show color. I think it allows you to relate a little better.
