Hi Paul,

We've added the info you sent us regarding the parts that we found at Burtonwood to our website.

Here is the updated page:

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

We don't know if one of the parts we found is off a P-51 Mustang or not and what it actually is?

Do you know Paul?

Thanks again for your help?

Gary and Malc

Part numbers prefixed 109 are originally for the P-51D.
The casting is a bit corroded, so the number isn't 109-63157 but 109-63117: Support Assembly, Wing Bomb Rack, Rear, Left Hand.
Component part of 109-63218: Mechanism Assembly, Bomb Rack, LH.

All the best,
PB

Hi Paul,

Hope you are having a great time in the USA with the B-17?

If you have time, can you just take a look at an item that we found today at Burtonwood?

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

It is a bracket

24 (in a circle) 32E1503-6

Assembly Number 32E1503

Faint ink stamp with date May 25th 1944

Faint Number is 195

Regards

Gary & Malc

32E1503-6

32= B-24 Liberator
E = Electrical system

Other than that, it's the 6th part of sub-assembly 1503, but you'd have to look at the B-24 parts book or construction drawings to find out exactly what that was.

Hi Paul,

We went to a different part of Burtonwood today than we normally go and found some WW2 items including this B-17 fuel cap that is in great condition:

We found a couple of other things as well but we haven't had time to clean them up.

Hi Paul,

We found an unusual window from an aircraft today at Burtonwood.

Here is our website page where the window photo is (front and back):

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

Do you know which aircraft the window is from Paul?

We tried searching on google images at the usual aircraft of that period and we couldn't seem to find which aircraft it is from?

We also found a propeller barrel assembly housing but we don't know which aircraft that is from either?

No numbers are visible on it.

The photo is here:

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

Regards

Gary

We made some more finds today at Burtonwood.

Any ideas on which aircraft the fuel filler cap is from, along with the rounded black plexiglass item is from?

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

Plus, last week we asked if anyone knows what aircraft the window is from?

Plus, anyone know which aircraft the propeller barrel assembly housing is from?

These are all on the same page here:

The filler cap cover, part number 4138119, has a Douglas inspection stamp and may be from an A-26 (41xxxxx part numbers are valid for that airframe).

The rounded black piece would be found on the top of the astrodome, so could be from a B-17, B-24

Hi Paul,

Here's an update of our recent finds at Burtonwood.

We found 4 x bomb shackles, 2 of which are in very good condition along with another item that we cannot identify?

Here is the page with 1 of the bomb shackles and the item we cannot identify:

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

Hope you can help Paul.
