The N2S is a biplane used to train carrier pilots at the start of World War II and was nicknamed "Yellow Peril" since it has a brightly colored paint job intended to alert everyone around that a novice pilot was flying it and because the plane itself has poorly designed gear which gave it a tendency to "ground loop." After world War II, the remaining stock of N2S's were transferred to the Naval Academy, remaining in service until 1960.
