    WWII Navy Aircraft History Card


      I am trying to locate a WWII Navy Aircraft History Card for BuNo 32169. It was a PB4Y-1. Who do I contact to receive a copy of that? Thanks.

          Dear Ms. Collins,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          Navy aircraft history cards serve as a compilation of the locations and assigned units of the aircraft at set inventory times or as a record of transfers between locations or units. They do not record the complete history and activity of an individual aircraft. They also do not include information about missions or crews, nor do they record exact locations or manners of loss. The Smithsonian Online Virtual Archives provides a description of the U.S. Navy Aircraft History Cards in their custody. For access to Navy aircraft history cards from 1913 to October 1986, please contact the National Air and Space Museum Archives, 14390 Air & Space Museum Parkway, Chantilly, VA 20151. The telephone number is (703) 572-4045 and the email address is NASMRefDesk@si.edu.

          We hope that this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
