As our restoration team in Florida works on the P-47 Thunderbolt restoration, we have uncovered an amazing piece of history that we need your help with! As we removed the components of the turbosupercharger (turbocharger) section in the aft fuselage, we found the name of a "Rosie the Riveter" who likely helped construct the aircraft (P-47D-40-RA s/n 45-49167) in late 1944 at the Republic Aircraft factory in Evansville, IN. We think her name is "Sue Tharp" or "Sue Thorp" with a middle initial of "V"? We'd love to find her, if she is still with us, or her family. Is there anyone from the Evansville, IN area that might know or remember Sue? Any leads, email us at ahm@collingsfoundation.org! ... See MoreSee Less
