I am looking for any information I can find on my wife's grandfather's plane. He was a copilot on a B-24 "Joe Cox" I believe was the name of the plane. I have been to the Ken's Men website which focus' on the 43rd BG, and found a photo of him, but I am looking for info on the plane. Would really like to find a photo of it. Bought a 1/48 model for wife's cousin for Christmas, and would really like to be able to show him his grandfather's airplane.
Thanks,
Steve
