An item of interest is a modeling article by Joe Lyons. He has used these pictures as a reference & recreated a set

of model aircraft as they were on that day. The article has many pictures & information about each type of aircraft

in Midway's Air Group Two & he has done a wonderful job of recreating the Air Group. To see the article, please
