Re: Navy PBY Air Bases
This website was sent to me by an old classmate, who was a navy flyer in WW2. He flew a PBY.It may be the same.....or related to the website that Dave mentioned.
As for ships that were sunk in the Gulf and off the east coast of Florida...there were many! In early '43 I was sent to Miami to take an examination while in the Aviation Cadet Corps.There was about eight inches of oil soaked sand on the beaches, making it impossible to swim.At night we could look out toward the east and see a red glow on the horizon from burning oil tankers.It is frightening to think that we could have lost that war!Les
