    On August 25, 1942 Douglas SBD-3 BuNo. 03315 "Black 16" from Scouting 71 aboard the USS Wasp (CV-7) was flown by two different pilots that day. The aircraft was used to down three Japanese aircraft on the 25th. During the morning flight Lt(jg) Chester V. Zalewski downed two Aichi E13A "Jake" floatplanes. In the afternoon "Black 16" was piloted by Lt. Morris R. Doughty on an anti-shipping sortie when he downed a Kawanishi H8K "Emily". The three red stars mark the events of that day.
