The plane that turned the tide of WWII in the Pacific

Charles Kennedy, with the Commemorative Air Force, explains to The Citizen’s Bethan Adams how the machine gun works in the back of an SBD Dauntless dive bomber. “I believe this is the most historically significant airplane,” he said. According to Kennedy, the plane created a turning point in World War II at the Battle of Midway when Dauntless pilots sank four Japanese aircraft carriers, even though the model was considered out of date at the time. The SBD at the Great Georgia Air Show Saturday is one of two left in the world, nick-named “Slow, But Deadly” by pilots.
