On August 25, 1942, the SBD-3 "Black 16" aboard the USS Wasp (CV-7) was flown by two pilots at different times that day. During the morning, Lt. Chester V. Zalewski shot down two Aichi E13A "Jake" floatplanes and, in the afternoon, Lt. Morris R. Doughty downed a Kawanishi H8K "Emily." This Dauntless wears three red stars, marking the Japanese aircraft taken out on one day.
