Black Cats Patrol Bombing Squadron 71 Men's T-Shirt
Introducing a tee shirt that pays homage to the legendary Black Cats of history, featuring their iconic logo. The Black Cats, a nickname earned during their remarkable operations, made history on November 24, 1944, when VPB-71 deployed to Manus Island, joining the Commander, Air Seventh Fleet for duty. Two of their aircraft were temporarily loaned to the 2d Emergency Rescue Squadron of the 13th Army Air Force. On that fateful day, VPB-71 initiated their Black Cat missions in the vicinity of Morotai. Black Cat operations were a daring endeavor undertaken by U.S. Navy Catalina squadrons, flying covert missions against Japanese shipping and shore installations under the cover of darkness. To enhance their stealth and effectiveness, these remarkable seaplanes featured flat black painted surfaces and cutting-edge radar technology. This tee shirt serves as a symbol of their bravery and innovation, a testament to the Black Cats' triumphant legacy in military history.
