Re: American aircraft photos 8 - 12

There were PB4Ys and PBYs on Morotai the same time as PVs (Fleet Air Wing 17 from 19/10/44 to 30/12/44) the PBY is a "Black Cat" possibly from VPB 71, they were Matt Black overall and on Morotai in Nov.-Dec. VP/VPB 11 also there Oct.-Nov. The Liberator looks like a Navy PB4Y-1, in the old Blue Grey-Light Grey rather than Army Olive Drab; one of 3 VPBs there.

If the PV is 34874 she was wrecked in a Jap air raid in the Admiralty Is. 29/11/44.
There were PBM Mariners from VPB 20 "Nightmares" on Morotai from Oct. ( I think they had some black aircraft).
