Directions to Grumman/Eastern Aircraft TBM-3E Avenger

When you enter the hangar deck from the Tower 1 gangway (bridge), turn right and go past the large steam accumulator pipes, commissioning bell, optical landing system (the concave mirror with lights on each side) and ship propeller. The TBM Avenger propeller plane is just past a speed bump-like rise in the floor (the original fire door tracks). The title of the panel is “Women in World War II Naval Aviation.”
