Crosby at National WWII Museum

Posted by Crosby on Jun 23, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Next time you are in The National WWII Museum in New Orleans look up! The "Flying Fortress" above you, along with the other planes in the National WWII Museum, are suspended using Crosby rigging products.

Roland Ross, Crosby Director of International Sales, was visiting the museum when he snapped these photos. They show our famous "Red Pin" shackles, wire rope thimbles and master links in service holding up the B-17 heavy bomber "My Gal Sal". The plane and its crew were forced to make an emergency landing on the Greenland ice cap during WWII while in route to England. The crew was saved after 10 days but the plane was left behind for 50 years until it was recovered and restored to serve as a monument to the brave crews that served in WWII Army Air Force.

If in New Orleans visit this wonderful museum.
