    Sorry, that's all I've got. It's not in active restoration and stored up on trestles. Couldn't get any interior shots.

    Good to see, seeing as how there are not many survivors.

    My 312th BG book has the following:

    Serno is actually 43-21627. This makes sense as the 312th didnt get into combat untill 1944 and the "42" indicates a 1942 purchase contract. And thats unlikely as these bombers were used up at a good clip and most would have been gone by the time the 312th got into combat.

    As per the book:

    "Damaged in a flight line explosion at Nadzab on 7/4/44. Salvaged at Tadji in the 70's."
