Re: A CATALINA CRASHED IN CROTIA ?

Here is an interesting detail : there is a box fixed on the airframe (see pictures) with markings.

One can a triangle in a circle, and there is a marking: DC8G-3C (I suppose an electrical item ? "DC").

Would this give an indication ?

Concerning measurement of the parts, we should have them soon.

Re: A CATALINA CRASHED IN CROTIA ?

Hello col. Bruggy,

The pieces found on the spot (I see and touch on of them) suggests a very violent crash: it can not be an airplane that sank in one piece as described in the report of 16th November 1944 of the 1st Emergency Rescue Squadron.
I try with Gilles to load some pictures.

So, looking the the size of the threaded part below the nut, it appears the diameter is 42mm with a thread pitch of 2mm. That would appear to be a metric size bolt and thread pitch, i.e. 42x2 not US/Canadian size measurements in the 1940s.
