It was the task of a select group of naval aviators during WW2 to deliver devastating blows to heavily defended Japanese aircraft carriers and supply ships. As the U.S. Navy and Marines hopped from island to island on the long sail toward the Japanese homeland, gaining and maintaining supremacy of the air and sea were of utmost importance. This dangerous duty fell to the men of units like the 5th Bombing Squadron (VB-5) and their Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bombers. They did their job well—it was the Dauntless that dealt a death blow to the Japanese Imperial Navy’s aircraft carriers during the Battle of Midway in 1942, setting the stage for the successes that finally brought an end to the war.

This beautifully designed t-shirt from the Aeroplane Apparel Company honors the bravery and sacrifices of the VB-5 crews that flew from the USS Yorktown. On the front, the emblem of VB-5 is prominently displayed with the words “fifth bombing squadron” in cursive script underneath. On the back, the VB-5 emblem is superimposed over a silhouette of the trusty Dauntless with the AAC logo overhead. Two other SBDs fly in close formation, ready for the next bombing run.

  • Constructed from 100% certified organic cotton for super soft feel. You'll want to wear this t-shirt everywhere.
  • Double needle sleeve and bottom hems for extra durability.
  • An authentic representation of historical artwork, proudly made in the USA.
