B-24 Liberator (multiple)

B-24 Liberators and artifacts I have photographed at museums and air shows. The examples at RAF London and IWM Duxford are the sole remaining B-24 Liberators in England, and I was able to photograph both during our England trip in 2008. There is a beautiful B-24J displayed in a hangar at the Pima Air Museum.

The Warhawk Air Museum is creating a display to honor B-24 veterans using the cockpit and turret removed from a PB4Y-2 Privateer.

B-24D / B-24J nose display

This was created by combining the nose from an early B-24D 41-11874 with the cockpit of a later model B-24J-5-FO 42-51457. It is painted to represent a real aircraft, 42-40506 Fightin’ Sam of the 389th BG.
