Description: [Military/WWII] 11 photographs likely taken near Naval base at Chincoteague, VA. 6 show Navy aircraft while airborne, 1 shows aircraft at ground level, 3 are aerial views and 1 is a group photo of Utility Squadron 4 (as indicated by “VU-4” sign in background). 1 aircraft has “Cdr. J. Kennedy Jr.” on side, which might be a reference to Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., who died as a Navy pilot from a premature explosion during a mission August 1944. Gelatin silver. 8 photos’ images 16 7/8 x 20 1/2 in., sheets 18 x 21 3/4 in. Other 3 are slightly larger (larger images 18 7/8 x 22 3/4 in., larger sheets: 20 x 23 7/8 in.). Very good, faint handling wear at edges of sheets, some have a little more creasing at corners, some have tiny pinhole at corners.
