CV-8 Deck Markings at Midway
Posted by Mark T on October 6, 2017, 8:04:58, in reply to "Another Hornet (CV-8) question?"
As I did my research for the USN at Midway decal sheet I came across several photos of VF-8 on the Hornet dated 6-4-1942. They are from a DVD you have to buy, so Not posting them to the internet (sorry)
They show deck markings that are very dark, maybe black or Deck Blue. I know they are not random skid marks or stains because you can see the distance markings (390, 400) clearly in the photo. Also visible are dashes and what appears to be two center-line markings, one straight, another offset and merging to the "centerline".
Hope this helps.
