    Hello,

    Building a instument panel of a P-47D-21-RA(see photo). This panel will be supporting our recovery results of P-47D 43-25515 of the 56th FG/63rd FS which crashed on September 21st,1944 near Lochem, Holland.
    I'm looking for info on the Mk8 reflector gunsight. And I was wondering if the Mk8 was fitted or that this Jug was allready re-fitted with the gyro-gunsight?

    The results of this recovery can be found at this link:
    Recovery and photographs

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    Kind regards,
    Sander

    The P-47D-30 still uses the MK 8.

    Your welcome or (graag gedaan).

    I like your website and the scientific approach. The more research we can do the better. For you guys it's really the truth is out there (to dig up).
