Valiant Miniature Kit# 9808 - U.S. Navy Pilot, 1941-45.
While the truth of the Navy assertion that their pilots were superior to the Army's is debatable, there is no doubt that the Navy's carrier-based pilots were a special breed unto themselves. Not only was the carrier pilot faced with the usual perils of air combat, but he was saddled with the additional difficulty of taking off and landing on a floating landing strip barely two hundred yards long, which might be tossing in a storm, under fire, on fire, badly damaged, or simply missing when he returned.
