Cruising high above the city and harbor Navy
fighters signal the arrival of one of the most
important ships of the day, an aircraft carrier. In
the late 1920s aviation began to bloom within the
U.S. Navy and the aircraft carrier gained
recognition as the warship of the future. The
diminutive Boeing fighter, the F4B-2, was one of
the most successful designs of the period. With an
operational appeal to the Army as well, the Boeing
design evolved into the well known P-12 series.
Carrier aviation has changed as dramatically as
the Manhattan skyline but Naval Aviation has a
foundation as solid as the city below.
