This doesn't go over well, I can't upload the pic I was talking about, so go to "Bing Images, USS Hornet 26 May 1942".
I am no good at this cut and paste etc. But I know enough to know these aren't 9N's... they are huge for that time aren't they? the offset seat tells me Olive? Minnie Moline? -Massey Harris was more often a Canadian tug, but another detective job for a long winter's night...

Sorry Tony, but Google doesn't come up with anything for the link "Bing Images, USS Hornet 26 May 1942".

Post the internet URL link here so I can find it.

Hi Bob, Bing is an alternative search engine to google, so that might help ... ??

Oh you guys! I thought someone besides me could .. do whatever it takes to bring up the picture. Yep, Bing.com is a search engine, and as it finds pics on a subject, it adds them to a page. There were about 5 hornets, so as I saw the caption 26 May 1942, I tried it, came up with that certain snapshot... but I don't know how to post it or whatever an erl is... sorry mate...80- G-66-132 is on there too tho,

Bob, I just emailed the pic to myself off two sites, the G number must mean it was a government photographer, so most searches will dig it up, but if you send me your email address, I can sent it to you- or anyone reading this that does know how to post it here... mind you they aren't fergies!

There ya go X , that's the one. When someone posted it last year it was cropped to just show the ship, tractors and palm brow, that version was a nicer pic. Guess that's why pro photographers do that in the darkr room... are there darkrooms anymore?

You mean this photo:



"USS Hornet (CV-8 ) enter Pearl Harbor, May 26, 1942. She left two days later to take part in the Battle of Midway. Photographed from Ford Island Naval Air Station, with two aircraft towing tractors parked in the center foreground." (05/26/42)

Ah, you internet challenged guys! Laughing

They look relaxed considering five months earlier they had unwelcome rather hostile visitors!

Interestingly, USS Hornet carried the 16 B-25s on the flight deck which bombed Japan under the command of Lieutenant Colonel James H. Doolittle.

USS Hornet was sunk in the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, 27 October 1942, the last US fleet carrier lost in WW II.

I wonder what those tractors are?
