Hi Paul,

We've been to Burtonwood today again and if you remember we asked you what this certain part was (on our website), and you wrote back to us and said it was a portside wastegate from a P47 Thunderbolt.

Well, today we have found another one (not far from the other) but this time this one is the starboard one.

Here it is on our website:

http://www.historicaviationmilitary.com ... dings.html

Hope you like it.

Regards

Gary & Malc

Hi Paul,

We have received a photo and some info regarding USAAF trench art of Burtonwood BAD1 in WW2 and we were wondering if you have any more information about it?

Was this common practice at other USAAF stations?

The photo is on this page here:

Hi Paul,

Have you any idea what part of a B17 this is off?

We found it today at Burtonwood.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the info regarding the B-17 rudder trim casting.

Did you get time to find the detailed drawings of where the part was actually fitted on the aircraft?

We've also found some exhaust parts that we would like you to look at to see if you know what they are from?

Here are the photos:

http://historicaviationmilitary.com/air ... dings.html

Hope you can help?

Regards

Gary & Malc

Here's the drawing:

I'm afraid I can't see your new bits, your website seems to be down at the moment.

All the best,
PB

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the info again.

Regarding our site?

It is working ok?

http://www.historicaviationmilitary.com ... dings.html

Perhaps we gave you the wrong link last time?

Regards

Gary & Malc

Site working again just fine now. :)

89P67132-2

Image

89-prefixed parts are from a P-47.
The letter indicates which section of the airframe it belongs in, P = powerplant, i.e. the engines and related items.
The next two letters indicate the subsystem, 67 = Installation, Exhaust System.

This is a sleeve from a P-47 starboard-side exhaust manifold section joint.
The matching sleeve for the port side is 89P67132-3.

89P67107

Image

I can't find item 89P67107 specifically in the list but, as noted above, the 89P67xxx number means it also has to be part of a P47 exhaust system.

32P1721

Image

32-prefixed parts are from a B-24.
Again, the letter indicates which section of the airframe it belongs in, thus 32P = B-24 powerplant.

This is an exhaust section from between one of the the forward bank of cylinders and the collector ring. Solar is the sub-contractor who supplied this particular part, the Solar Aircraft Co.
