This is a Buffalo flown by Capt. William C. Humberd
USMC during the Battle of Midway.
Humberd was in the Third Division of VMF-221, and
claimed both a B5N2 and and A6M during the June 4 fracas, plus damage to
another B5N2. He received the Navy Cross for this action. This
particular Buffalo seemed to have problems with oil seeping out of the
seams of the forward fuselage.
