E.Brown - Valediction for the veteran Vought /Viewed from the Cockpit/
The photograph of Chesapeake AL924 shows the aerodynamically clean lines of this Vought-Sikorsky aircraft in side profile.
The mainwheels and their leg fairings of the Chesapeake, seen clearly in the photograph, were intended to be employed for braking purposes in shallow dives
AL943 is seen flying from Lee-on-Solent in June 1942.
The outer wing panels of the Chesapeake were manually folded as illustrated.
