    My team has just located Mustang P 51 K KH 686, call sign YT-P from RAF 65th squadron that went lost on 7th. of april 1945.

    We have recovered several parts, and hope members of this forum will be able to help identifying them.

    I allow my self to put the link to the site where we have discussed this wit multiple very helpful members of the forum there.
    Helpfull in the search has also been Sara Mosher and Steven Brooking.

    I hope you enjoy reading the thread from the start, and are able to help us identify the objects.

    Yours
    Bergen

    This one is an exhaust pipe.

    This one is half the engine mount (lower part of image) and an exhaust shroud (upper part).

    This one is an engine head obviosuly.

    102-31073-14 is a doubler for the upper engine cowl. It is right behind the exhaust. That means the assembly it is spotwelded too is the upper cowling.

    Post some specific pics and I'll try to help out with more.
