80-G-387178 USS Sable

Photo #: 80-G-387178  USS Sable
Title: USS Sable
Description: (IX-81) TDN-1 drone about to crash into Grand Traverse Bay, after taking off from the ship while she was steaming off Traverse City, Michigan, during flight tests, 10 August 1943. The terrain in the distance appears to be different from that seen in Photo # 80-G-387175, and people in Sable's catwalk have moved (as has the photographer), indicating that this may be a different TDN-1 than that seen in the other photo. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
Catalog #: 80-G-387178
