That looks like a late 40's, early 50's carrier.
That plane doesn't. 🤔
And what's on the wing tips ? 😳
Any story behind the pic ?

This was the original pic. An F2A-3 (Buffalo fighter) of VMF-211 (3rd Marine Aircraft Wing group) on CVE-1 (USS Long Island), bad landing, 2 July 1942. Per wiki, CVE-1 was lead ship of her class and the first escort carrier of the United States Navy.
