TBM-3 Avenger Doris Mae More Doris Mae Info
Our TBM-3E Avenger is a Grumman designed (TBF) aircraft built under license by GM in New Jersey in 1945. Assigned initially to the US Marine Corps, we know that this aircraft served as a replacement aircraft in several USMC training units in California from 1945 to 1948 and then was transferred to the Royal Canadian Navy in 1952.
The Avenger was bought by the CAF Stars & Stripes Wing in 2001 for $64,000 and flown to Frederick, MD for restoration to the TBM-3E WWII configuration.
