Grumman TBM-3E Avenger 

This is a collection of air and ground photos of our historically restored Torpedo bomber. Note how the wings are hydraulically folded to reduce the aircraft storage space needs on WWII aircraft carriers. Instead of the bomb bay holding its normal 13 foot long, 2,200 lb Mark 13 torpedo, we attend airshows today with a set of sturdy aluminum steps that provide everyone a safe way to climb on top the wing and get an up-close view of the pilot and rear gunner areas. The radio operator position was within the fuselage. In the earlier -1 versions, he also fired a .30 caliber machine gun to protect from attacks from below. These attacks were rare and this gun was not installed on later models like ours.
