By the mid-1930s, the U.S. Navy needed to replace its biplane fighters with a more modern aircraft. After a competition among several manufacturers, the entry from the fledgling Brewster Aeronautical Corp. of Queens, New York, was chosen.
Designed by Dayton Brown, the F2A-1 was an all-metal monoplane with retractable landing gear and (for the time) exceptional pilot visibility
Following an order for 54 aircraft, the Brewster F2A-1 began to enter squadron service with the U.S. Navy in the fall of 1939.
The 25 aircraft of VMF-221 took off at 0600, 4 June 1942, to intercept a Japanese air raid. The squadron consisted of regular USMC pilots and new USMCR pilots. The green 2nd Lt.s were usually wingmen to regular pilots. Tactically the squadron was divided into five divisions that operated independently.
The Battle of Midway was about to start.
