You are most welcome Johnny. I love the Cat and the work it did in the Pacific. The others too were very interesting. Robert

I also really liked the Navy's use of the Consolidated PB4Y-2 Privateer. Robert

The state where I live is where the Tillimook Naval Air Stationis and where ZP-33 was stationed. I have visited the hangar quite a few times and am always awed by it.Its a shame it's twin burned down so many years ago. Robert
