Artifact-Norden Bombsights

Museum volunteers John Solin and Jim Siggins examine a newly-loaned Norden bombsight, previously housed in a vintage WWII aircraft. Norden bombsights were among the most closely guarded secrets of WWII. Bob Biddle, one of the Museum’s founders, was a Norden bombsight instructor during WWII and was highly regarded for innovative tactics he developed for using the Norden bombsights in PBY4 Privateer aircraft. Early in 2019, these bombsights are going on display as part of an exhibit describing their history and honoring Bob Biddle.
