Arguably the best of its type ever built for the US Navy, the Curtiss SC came too late to play a significant role in WWII.It’s hard to believe there are no surviving examples of this fine aircraft. That being said, the remains of two of these aircraft were recently seen when the wreck of the USS Indianapolis was discovered. But they are 18,000 feet deep, and in pieces.Only a handful of these were built: the SC-2Post-war photo of 33654 and 35594 resting upon the catapults of an Iowa class battleship. “CA” was the code for VO-1C of NAS Terminal Island.Hopefully, this was not as fatal as it looks. Bureau no. has been airbrushed out.
