A rare sight greeted the warbird world on May 19, 2018 in Peru, Illinois at KVYS for the 2018 TBM Avenger Salue to Veterans. 11 Grumman TBM Avengers, along with many other warbirds and general aviation aircraft gathered at Illinois Valley Regional Airport for a mixture of public displays and public interaction.
We would love to hear interesting stories from people involved with Avengers during or after World War II. We've heard amazing stories from pilots, turret gunners, radiomen, maintenance personnel and deckhands. We encourage anyone with Avenger "history" to contact us and share your stories.
We need your help in Saluting the Veterans! If you would like to help with a monetary donation, please contact us!
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue to support our Veterans of all conflicts.
