Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

Good morning Peter,

I think what you wrote is true for the PB4Y-2.
Is there a feature that discrimates the PB4Y-1 from all B-24's ?

Cheers,

Michael

Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

Sorry Michael, you're right.
The early PB4Y-1's were B-24D's transferred from army to navy.
This artcle might help you if you haven't seen it already -

Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

The last kill of a PB4Y ace (Paul Stevens) took place on 17Mar1945.

Were PB4Y-2's available already at that date ?

Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

The PB4Y-2 entered squadron service (with VPBs 106, 118 and 119) in August 1944.

Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

Good evening,

where there PB4Y-2 Privateers used by VPB-117, VPB-115, VPB-104 or VD3 in WW2 ?

Cheers,

Michael

Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

Those squadrons operated PB4Y-2s from May 1945 (104 and 115) and June 1945 (117). VD-3 had none.

Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

Good morning twocee,

thanks for the info.
That means that all PB4Y aces scored in the PB4Y-1 only.

Have a nice Wednesday,

Michael
