Ships Planes Comments
VP-27 was formerly VP-83. Operated in the Aleutians in support of PatWing FOUR. (Also operated in England?) Squadron's PBYs were being replaced by P2V2s.
Folder is huge (much duplication) and also appears to contain records of Heavy Patrol Squadron SEVEN, which mentions 2 PBY-5As and a search for PBY V4032 on "unreported flight Kodiak to Dutch Harbor since 062045Z."
