KB332, destroyed in 1944 in a flying accident near Greenwood, has a sister MkXX (KB336) at the National Aviation Museum in Ottawa.
336 is in beautiful shape. I’m not sure if she is in the same colours she wore while an OTU bird, but it is thrilling none-the-less to be able to study what was so utterly destroyed on the hillside we are researching.
During our first recovery search of the crash site, we located one piece about 100 feet away from what we assess as being the main impact site. Russ is holding the piece in his hand at the end of the day.
Turns out, it is a bomb-bay hinge.
