PB4Y-2 parts,

In regards to your recent request in the October 2015 issue for information on PB4Y-2 parts. The South Bighorn airport in Graybull Wyoming did have some PB4Y-2s parked on the tarmac side several years ago. They may have belonged to the DOI. Driving by last summer I was surprised by the variety of a/c parked […]

On page 28, Werner Moelder’s Rechlin report mentions two pitch settings on the Spitfire’s propeller. This was true for earlier […]

“Hauling Cargo” Wasn’t Easy

Read with interest Mr. Renner’s article on Jacques Young in the latest issue of Flight Journal. It so happens Young and I were both in the 3rd Air Commando Group. Difference was he flew a P-51 and I the C-47 or as you described “Hauling Cargo,” which wasn’t as easy as it sounds. I can […]
