wheel. The directions call for the pneumatic rear tire on the AAF version
and the hard rubber tire on the Marine and Navy variant. I know the hard
rubber tire was used for shipboard ops to keep the back of the plane from
bouncing but since the Marines operated their Buffalos on land at Midway,
wouldn't they have had the pneumatic rear tire as well?
Does anyone have any definitive info on this?
