RE: [PBY] Unidentified gadget
I don't think so, Bob ; you couldn't slide the window then.
Look at NC18997...

Seems to be attached to something inside the cockpit.
Looking at pictures from National Museum of Naval Aviation Library, I have found some PBY-3s (air scoop atop the nacelles for downdraft carb.)
I wonder what this gadget is - pilot's window, rear angle.

First time I look at this, I found it only on 3 pics, pictured at Corpus Christi. Nothing on any other photo I have.
Any idea or memory?
