A carefully crafted S-3b Viking model with the VS-33 “World Famous Screwbirds”- a perfect display to capture your time with the legendary squadron!  Each model is solid wood and hand painted to provide a piece of exceptional quality.   Wingspan is 18 inches.

VS-33 was commissioned April 1, 1960, as Air Anti-Submarine Squadron (VS) 33 in San Diego. They were the first fixed-wing anti-submarine squadron to be commissioned under the Navy’s carrier group concept.

They originally flew the Grumman S-2 Tracker. VS-33 introduced the S-3A Viking in 1975, and in 1991, they transitioned to the S-3B Viking.
