Cartoon Depicting AM-1 Mauler Flight Operations

Cartoon depicting propensity of accidents by the AM-1 Mauler aircraft
Caption: A cartoon drawn by a member of Carrier Air Group (CVG) 8 depicts the problems experienced by the AM-1 Mauler in carrier operations, which revealed themselves in the initial trials of the airplane and continued in fleet service. The word “Mable” in one of the cartoon bubbles is reference to one of the Mauler’s catchy but in some ways ill-fitting nicknames, the “Able Mable.”
