2,000 employees of the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corp. in Hicksville gathered to celebrate their plant’s record breaking achievement in production. Vice Admiral Aubrey W. Fitch, Depot Chief of Naval Air Operations, addressed the gathering. He told them that “Your March output of 605 hellcat planes is a world’s record for monthly production of one type of airplane from one plant.” Here is a general view of the gathering, April 9, 1945.
