Photo Comment

A very rare Brewster Bermuda built for the Royal Air Force but cancelled before delivery. Diverted to the US Army Air Corps, it was among several Bermudas scrapped at Tullahoma, TN and abandoned. Recovered by David Tallichet / Yesterday's Air Force, the remains were eventually traded to the National Museum of Naval Aviation for a Grumman Wildcat. Restored by 60 former Brewster Aircraft employees it has been put on display at Pensacola in US Navy markings as a SB2A-1 Buccaneer.
