The snake-head pitot tube on the port wing gives this plane away as a Curtiss SB2C Helldiver. The majority of US Naval aerial photography in WW2 was taken from the SB2C.

Wrong! That's a Grumman wing, if ever there was one. It's an Avenger.

Upon further review.........I'm not so sure it's not a Helldiver. I defer to Mr. Stubblebine.
