Ranger Over Ruins

This image depicts a Consolidated P2Y-1 Ranger (Flying Boat) screaming into the sky at full power just over the tops of some unidentified jungle ruins. Beyond the P2Y-1, a great airship -- ZRS-5 -- hangs suspended in mid-air.

A Consolidated P2Y-1 seaplane and ZRS-5 overfly ruins at a location code-named “Site 10” by the Navy.

As with many of these documents, the exact date of recording is redacted. However, at least six P2Y-1s were in service with the VP-10F squadron at NAS Coco Solo by 1 April 1933.
