Hawkins & Powers PB4Y Privateer sitting in the Hawkins and Powers storage area. BuNo. 59882, N7962C, is a PB4Y-2. Hawkins and Powers used a number of Privateers for aerial firefighting.<br />
<br />
The PB4Y-2 Privateer was based on the B-24N Liberator with modifications specified by the Navy for a patrol bomber. The most noteable difference is the tail section. The PB4Y also did not have turbocharged engines since its role as a patrol bomber did not require it to operate at the altitudes that the B-24 did.
