Re: Spider Navy Antietam
I have seen photos from the 1953-1955 period showing a variety of different aircraft aboard including an AJ Savage, Cougars, Banshees, Panthers etc. From 1955-57 she operated as a CVS but in 1958 underwent further modifications which would make her different than the model. So those are your choices. I donít know if she actually operated an integrated air group before becoming a CVS.
I could not find much evidence that she ever had an attack air group, post angled deck trials. I can find lots of pictures during the trials period and lots during CVS periods.
