Hello Folks, I have had the good fortune to be able to excavate a local aircraft dump site, however, I also work at this location, so I am unable to name it, appologies. Some good finds today, can anyone help with identificaqtion please?. This large armoured section with armoured glass has me stumped, it seems to be from a vehicle?. it is very heavy, and would require at least two people to be able to lift it. The glass appears armoured, with a small center section that I asssume was heated during icing conditons. I also uncovered what I think might be the sliding windscreen section of a B-17?, and a Map Case, the colour of which appears to be bronze green, I was thinking B-24 or B-17?

many thanks

WL

The bottom picture looks like the remains of a B17 front and a side window as they were both laminated glass , these look like remains of the plastic laminate?
