The Battle of Midway was the turning point of World War II in the Pacific, leading to eventual Allied victory. At the very start of that fateful conflict came this ominous confrontation. At 7:00 A.M. on June 4,1942, Grumman TBF Avengers of the VT-8 squadron on their maiden combat flight were attacked by Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighters. A-T-I was the only Avenger to survive the encounter. American Airlines First Officer and top aviation artist Craig Kodera honors all the courageous men who fought and died that day in Only One Survived.
