Hey all:
Hope everyone is doing OK.

I was flipping through my AE manual the other night and stopped to admire the really nice black and white "action" photo on pg.217, Spotting Units, with the USN seaplane.

I did some searching online, but have yet to come up with a legit, high quality picture/print website or store that could provide such material, particularly in a bit larger photo formats.

Anyone lend a hand?
Thanks!

Getty Images likely has some pics - they are the largest repository of photos in the world - but they are expensive. The other angles you may want to pursue are museums that cover the topic. Imperial War Museum, National Air and Space, Duxford, etc.

The US National Archives has MANY photos, and other things too. For free. Most, however, are not high quality but some are.

Not a photo, but interesting: a short movie of US carrier damage by Japanese air strikes--https://catalog.archives.gov/id/4957645
