Consolidated P4Y-2 Privateer N2871G at the Copperstate Fly-in on Saturday, October 23, 2010. It was delivered to the US Navy as BuNo 66302 in 1945. It flies as tanker 121.


Consolidated P4Y-2 Privateer N2871G was originally equipped with four Pratt and Whitney R1830-94 radial engines. Hawkins Powers replaced those engines with Wright Cyclone R2600 radial engines.



I have two pages of photos from the Fly-in on display at Air-and-Space.com: http://air-and-space.com/20101023%20Copperstate%20page%201.htm

Any reason why they were flying with the gear down? My work is about 30 miles from Casa Grande airport and it was still down when they flew over.

This aircraft looks like a true frankenbird.  The fuselage and “Greenhouse” forward of the wing spar looks like it came from a B-24A Liberator.  The wing looks like a B-24/PB-4Y wing.  The after fuselage and tail look like that of the PB-4Y minus the waste tubs for the observers/gunners (you can see where they were removed under the white paint.  The engine nacelles look like they came from a C-47 or possibly a C-54.   The engine nacelles on the B-24s and the PB-4Ys were oval shape, flattened on the top and bottom.  This example has round nacelles with a ram scoop on the top.  The Liberators and Privateers air vents were on each side of the nacelle (check the nacelles in the photo of Witchcraft).  It may be the angle of the photo, but it looks shorter than the Privateers I've seen (photos and museum pieces).  Frankenbird or not.  This is a cool airplane and the shots of it are superb.
