PBJ-1H at MCAAF Newport Photograph

A PBJ-1H of VMB-613 at Marine Corps Auxiliary Air Field Newport, Arkansas in late October 1944.  The AN/APS-3 search radar, housed within the radome on the aircraft's starboard wingtip, is clearly visible.  In addition to the search radar, these aircraft were heavily modified with additional communications, navigation and radar equipment, including the new AN/APG-13A radar gun director.
