You hear quite a bit about it in the Pacific but not alot about the Atlantic. IMO it was just as important if not more important. Robert

My father was a gunner on a PB4Y2 out of Bermuda. He was certainly happy to stay out of the Pacific.

My salute to him. I bet he was. I would be too. All those miles and miles of nothing. Robert

I do love the Southern Atlantic due to the airships being used like the K-110 from the ZP-42 Squadron which was based at Santa Cruz, Brazil . Robert

"All those miles and miles of nothing."

There's an awful lot of nothing in the Atlantic too. Kinda like the "Massive" being dwarfed by the "Gargantuan".

True but at least you have the Bahamas and Brazil wink. And with the Airships it was a somewhat leisurely ride.
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.
