BOEING B-17G-95-DL 44-83868/77233/N5237V Jul 45 Built by Douglas Aircraft Corporation at Long Beach, California with manufacturers' serial 32509, as part of the last block of B-17Gs built by Douglas, `868 being the 17th from last of the block, part of contract No.AC-1862. 04 Jul 45 First Flight - 1?-hour test flight by Douglas test pilot Wally Tower. 05 Jul 45 50-minute test flight by Tower since the previous flight had been less than the statutory 1? hours. 06 Jul 45 Accepted at factory by USAAF as 44-83868. 08 Jul 45 Departed Long Beach en route to Syracuse Army Air Base, NY, via Chanute Field IL - arrived 09 Jul. 14 Jul 45 Transferred from USAAF supply pool to US Navy as Bu No.77233. With the advent of the Cadillac II programme (land-based long-range Airborne Early Warning, command and control system) the USAAF set aside 20 brand new Douglas built B-17Gs serialled between 44-83855 and 44- 83884, including 44-83868, forming the nucleus of the US Navy radar equipped PB-IW programme as US Navy serials 77225 to 77244. The aircraft were transferred to the US Navy at Johnsville, Pennsylvania. See Article - `The Navy and Coast Guard PB-1; A Summation. S A Thompson, AAHS Journal Spring 1995. The US Navy obtained a total of 79 B-17s from various sources 1945-50, 21 as PB-IWs and 28 purely for spares. On this date the aircraft left Syracuse Air Base for NAS Johnsonville, a crew having been requested three days earlier. Upon transfer 44-83868 and the other aircraft were ferried to the Naval Aircraft Modification Unit (NAMU) at NAS Johnsville for conversion, the major change being the installation of AN/APS-20 search radar in a radome fitted below the bomb bay. Antennae were added to the fuselage. Armament was usually deleted. Early PB-IWs flew in natural metal, later changed to overall gloss sea blue with white codes and lettering. PB-IWs entered Navy service for anti-submarine patrol and maritime reconnaissance duties in Spring 1946. 26 Jul 45 Struck off charge by USAAF? Aug 45- 44-83868 assigned to NAMU at Johnsville. Mar 47 Apr 47-Mar 48 Air Test and Evaluation Squadron No.4 (VX-4), at NAS Quonset Point,2 Rhode Island on the eastern coast of the USA. Apr 48 Assigned to Air Early Warning Squadron No.1 (VPW-1), Ream Field, San Ysidro, near San Diego, California, as one of four VX4 Pb1-Ws assigned to the unit. VPW-1 was the Navy’s first dedicated land based AEW Squadron, with an authorised strength of six aircraft. Operated in support of the Pacific Fleet. Due to limited facilities and short runways at Ream Field, the Squadron moved to nearby NAAS Miramar for operations, although Ream Field remained its assigned home base. 08 Sep 49- Under overhaul at Naval Air Material Centre (NAMC) Norfolk, 18 Jul 50 Virginia. 21 Jul 50 To VX-4, Patuxent River, Maryland. Carried squadron code ‘XD -5’ on tail. Generally operated in support of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet. May-Oct 52 Assigned to Airborne Early Warning Squadron 2 (VW-2) at NAS Patuxent River, including August-Oct 52 detachment to VW-2 Detachment 1 at Gardamoen, Norway. The former VX-4 had disbanded in June 1952 and reformed at the same base as VW-2 on 18 Jul 52, still operating in support of the Atlantic fleet. It provided Airborne Early Warning, scouting, weather reconnaissance and electronic countermeasures support. 14 Oct 52- Under overhaul at NAMC Norfolk, Virginia. 19 May 53 03 Jun 53- To VW-2, Patuxent River. The unit retired its last PB1-W in March 1955, Nov 54 replacing them with PO1-W Constellations. 08 Dec 54- Under overhaul at NAS Norfolk. During US Navy service carried codes XD-2 and XD-24. Overhaul period ended May 1955. 26 May 55 Withdrawn and stored at NAF Litchfield Park, 20 miles west of Phoenix, Arizona (where RAFM PBY-6A `L866' was also stored 1953-1957) US Navy PB-IWs were the last front line US Military B-17s and were replaced in 1955 by Lockheed WV-2 Constellation Warning Star aircraft. 10 Jul 56 Struck off US Navy charge along with the other remaining 15 US Navy B- 17s at Litchfield Park. (of these 16 aircraft, three survive today). The 16 PB-IWs were sold in three groups. At this time 77233 had logged 3,484 flying hours. 02 Dec 57 77233 was part of the third and final batch of thirteen PB-IWs sold, in this case to the American Pressed Steel Corporation of Dallas, Texas for $8,333.33 and given a registration block between N6460D and N6471D, 77233 being allotted N6466D, but this was not taken up - the company also had a block of registrations between N5225V and N5237V, and 77233 became N5237V on 08 March 1958 when this block was used in preference. 1958 Twelve of the 13 PB-IW aircraft were ferried from NAF Litchfield Park to Dallas - Love Field and parked near the Dallas Aero Service ramp on the north side of the airport and were gradually sold off as civil transports in South America (6 aircraft) and a US fire bombers (3 aircraft).

Kaman SH-2G "Super Seasprite"
The Super Seasprite is a high performance, all-weather Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) helicopter with anti-surface warfare, Search and Rescue (SAR) and utility capabilities. A unique design feature of many Kaman helicopters is the use of a trailing-edge servo flap, used for blade pitch control. The Seasprite prototype was the single engine HU2K-1, and its first flight was on 2 July 1959. Following flight testing at Patuxent River, Fleet deliveries began on 18 December 1962 to Helicopter Utility Squadron One at Naval Auxiliary Air Station Ream Field, California. These two squadrons provided detachments aboard all Fleet aircraft carriers serving as utility and as SAR plane guards. In 1962, the designation was changed to UH-2A under the tri-service designation system. The UH-2B model was a simplified model for Visual Flight Rules operations only. The UH-2C introduced the twin General Electric T-58 engines. The HH-2C followed, adding a 7.62-mm minigun in a nose turret and two in-waist positions This model also included dual main landing gear wheels, a four-bladed tail rotor, an upgraded transmission, new engines and an increased gross weight capability. These features, with the exception of the armament, were carried over to the HH-2D.The SH-2D, produced as the Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS), introduced a search radar in the radome under the forward fuselage including provisions for two MK 46 torpedoes. The SH-2F featured a relocation of the tail landing gear to improve shipboard compatibility and improved main rotor. The SH-2G Super Seasprite was upgraded with new avionics and with two General Electric T-7C0-GE-401 engines, replacing the T-58 engines. The Seasprite underwent continual test and evaluation at Patuxent River. The helicopter in this photo, SH-2G BuNo 161642, was accepted in the Navy's inventory as an SG-2F in November 1983. After a tour with the Rotary Wing Aircraft Test Directorate, it joined Helicopter Anti-Submarine Light Squadron Thirty-Two (HSL-32) in October 1984. The aircraft remained at HSL-32 until October 1991, before returning to Kaman for conversion to an SH-2G. Its first flight after the conversion was in September 1993. BuNo 161642 returned to Patuxent River in October 1993. It was involved in Dynamic Interface testing which evaluated the shipboard compatibility of helicopters including shipboard wind over deck flight envelope expansion. This Seasprire also participated in systems testing and modification evaluation for the Fleet until its final flight in September 1997. This aircraft was added to the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum aircraft collection in July 1998. This aircraft exhibit is maintained by personnel of the Naval Air Warfare Center - Aircraft Division, Rotary Wing Aircraft Test Squadron.
