I have a radar unit I believe from a Catalina Flying Boat that I was going to put on E-Bay but want to see if it can find a home in a Warbird restoration.

Thx, mark

Try:

The Naval Aviation museum at NAS Patuxent River MD might be interested in it.

You might also try The National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola. Its big. The museum has two Cats on inside display. One a cut away. I am sure the blimps used it too. The new Hangar Bay One addition just opened and its only half full.

Who knows what they have stashed in their restoration shops. For one example, I found out that they have 14 SBDs. Enough to form a squadron.
