Another Piece of Original Equipment For The B-17 Radio Compartment

We got a nice surprise today at the Mighty Eighth when John Finch showed me the BC-306-A Antenna Tuning Unit that he found and brought back from his recent trip over to Barksdale AFB to work with the restoration team of the "Yankee Doodle II". This is an item that we've had on our wish list for the last year. John's eagle eye spotted it and the guys there told him that they have two of them so they gave one of them to us. This will be mounted right above the Liason Transmitter on the bulkhead behind the radio operator.  Sweet!
