Notes for the above links:


*  indicates squadrons which were not aboard for the entire deployment.



Several support squadrons operated aboard Midway throughout the years. While not permanently assigned, they regularly sent detachments aboard to supply the ship with mail, personnel, and supplies. The squadron I can verify (although not with definite dates or details) is:


  • VRC-50 flying the C-1A, C-2A & US-3A
