I think that most of you are heard about the storry .
The Kingfisher was from the battleship North Carolina BB-55
On April,30 . 1944, during battle by the Truck Atoll, US Navy pilot LT(jg)
John Burns picked up seven (7 !!) downed airman, and taxied across the sea
for three hours picking up downed aviators, before rendezvousing with
submarine Tang SS-206
I was wondering does anybody have or know where on web I can find how the
John Burns's Kingfisher look like. I know the general painting scheme, but
fuselage number, cowling number etc ....?
I have one photo of it, but it's taken from rear and above, so no fuselage
markings is visible.
Any help is very appreciating.
Thanks in advance,
