Curtiss SB2C-3/4

Three  SB2C aircraft were based at Coast Guard Air station San Diego. They were used for Air rescue operations. The speed provided rapid delivery of rafts and other equipment to people in the water. They were also used to intercept and shoot down the balloon bombs the Japanese floated across the Pacific Ocean to strike the West Coast. The balloons did minimal damage.
