“WWII Dutch Harbor Scrapbook”
Ken Claypool, member of a PBY crew based on Attu in 1944, was kind enough to contribute these photos.
1. 1944: Approach to Dutch Harbor's runway.
2. 1944: Ken Claypool and Crew, Dutch Harbor, fall of 1944.
3. This photo of a VPB-61 PBY is on display at the Palm Springs Air Museum, and
is in the process of being restored. Ken Claypool flew in this plane when the
squadron was based on Attu in 1944.
