Eyes On The Fleet
Eyes On The Fleet
Posted:  August 10th, 2015
Updated:  August 10th, 2015

I am a retired Navy commander and have written a number of books on naval history. I am currently completing my latest one, titled "Eyes of the Fleet," devoted to the Navy's seaplane tenders and their patrol aircraft of World War II. I am hoping that you might be able to identify for me someone who commanded a seaplane tender, who might be willing to write a foreword for the book, encapsulating their experience with this type ship. I also would be interested in a second foreword by a pilot of a PBY Catalina or PBM Mariner.
If you wish, you may review my work at: www.davidbruhn.com
Sincerely,

David D. Bruhn

Anyone need 7 crates of PBY beaching gear?
Naval Aviation Museum
Posted:  August 10th, 2015
Updated:  August 10th, 2015

The Museum of Naval Aviation Foundation has 7 crates of PBY beaching gear. Anyone who has a need and is interested in taking these off our hands - please let us now ASAP?

They need to be moved from the storage building, and are not worth anything to us. We would hate to scrap these 7 crates of beaching gear, but if we can't find an interested party to take these items, we will be forced to scrap them. Again, if interested - contact us immediately.

Thank-you,

P2V Neptune Cockpit Project
Acquisition of P2V for Naval Air Museum Barbers Point
Posted:  July 28th, 2014
Updated:  July 28th, 2014

I’m contacting you regarding an opportunity to preserve the cockpit of an P2V Neptune which was acquired by the Southern Utah Air Museum for restoration and display to the public. Unfortunately, after ten years of effort the museum closed its doors in 2009, leaving several restoration projects uncompleted. We are now looking for other interested parties who may be able to carry forward with the effort of restoring these historic nose sections. The cockpits are complete projects with the manuals, panels and instruments needed to put them back into the same condition when they last flew.

Owing to your deep interest in Naval aviation I wanted to contact you and make you aware of the situation and ask if you may know of a museum or individual who might be interested in one of these pieces of aviation history.

Please visit the web site at http://www.b-52parts.com/ for images and call Larry Bennett at 435-669-7768, or me at 801-518-1829, for more information.

Shipmate Information Request #26
Memorial
Posted:  February 20th, 2013
Updated:  June 27th, 2013

OK Shipmates, you came through 2 Shipmate Findings25 Shipmate Findings times already!  You provided information for family members about their fathers and husbands that that Official Channels couldn't provide.  Here is number 2 Shipmate Findings26 Shipmate Findings:

My Father, ATN3 Francisco "Frank" VEGA, was lost during the VP-9 Mishap on April 7th, 1965. I was only 9 months old when he died and have always wanted to know about him. I would like to hear from anyone that may have known my Father. Thank you.

Frank Vega, Jr.
frankvega@ymail.com [20FEB2013]

UPDATE "...I recently received this e-mail from Steve "Andy" ANDRUSZKEWICZ sgpa2zfmly@aol.com..." Frank Vega, Jr. frankvega@ymail.com [27JUN2013]

I served with your Dad in VP-9 early 1964 at NAS Moffett Field, California. We had just begun the transition from P2V7's to the P-3 Orion.

Frank was a very enthusiastic, intelligent and most of all likeable and personable guy.

I remember a conversation we had, he was telling me how happy he was to be in a squadron as a crewman and how much fun he was having. It was early in his service but I think he was already considering a full 20 to 30 year career.

I left the squadron in August 1964 for Instructor Duty at NAS Memphis, Tennessee.

When I heard about the crash and the details and how Frank died I cried, he was such a vibrant young man.

There is an online VP-9 Website and Roster maintained by BIGLEY, CDR Tom Retired bigleytl@earthlink.net.

Sorry to say, I don't have any photos, but I'll always have that wonderful smiling face in my minds eye. When ever I see Eric Estrada I always think of your Dad.

Respectfully,
