McDonnell F2H-3 Banshee

F2H-3 Banshee of VC-3 -tail code: NP- and of VF-193 -tail code: B-.

You can also see the F2H-2P in this general view of the USS Oriskany (CV-34), on the right (sorry, I've missed the good shot as the recon variant is slighty out of the right border).
The following overview has been reused in Capricorn One.

The 'missing' Banshee should be in blue, below next to the grey one visible here.
