P-520: WWII & Korean War Crashboat


The story of USAAF crash boats in Alaska in WWII and the men who manned them. My dad, Collins Wynn Sr, was a crew member aboard the P750 as a radio operator/cook from 1942 through mid 1945. He appears in this documentary at 12:18‚Äč standing outside the pilot house to the right of three other crew. The P750 was a 104' crash boat and was the only one surviving into 2000 when this video was made. Its current status is unknown.
