Sweet. I'll have to see it when they get it refurbished.

As soon as I saw the designation I thought of this bit from The History Channel's Dogfights.

Fast forward to the 23:45 mark.

Here is a picture of an earlier F4F Wildcat also recovered from Lake Michigan:

It can be found in Terminal 3 of O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, and is displayed there to commemorate 'Butch' O'Hare (it was the kind of Wildcat he was flying when he won the Medal of Honor).

Interesting article!

According to "CBSChicago" the pilot survived the crash.

There were a lot of fatal training crashes during WW2. A neighbor and classmate of my mother was killed in one and my former mother-in-law was widowed by another.
