The SB2C Helldiver


The West Texas Wing of the Commemorative Air Force proudly presents the world’s only flying example of the Curtiss-Wright SB2C Helldiver, the last true Dive Bomber produced for the US Navy. While often maligned by some critics, the SB2C’s were responsible for more ship tonnage sunk during WWII than any other aircraft.

This magnificent aircraft is available for aerial display at your show, displaying dive-bombing, rocket attacks and strafing runs. The crew remains with the aircraft during show hours to answer the public’s questions and conduct tours of this very rare aircraft.
