Photo of AJ-2 Savage on aircraft elevator on board aircraft carrier USS Yorktown
Caption: The tail section and part of the fuselage of an AJ-2 Savage of Composite Squadron (VC) 6 overhangs a deck edge elevator on board the aircraft carrier Yorktown (CVA 10) during operations at sea in 1954. Even with the ability to fold the airplane’s wings and vertical stabilizer, the Savage was a challenge to maneuver around the limited confines of an aircraft carrier.
