    we saw the following planes @ Palwaukee Airport Sat,July 29th. The numbers
    on the planes were B25 130669, ML347GG
    B24 252534
    B17 231909R

    we were wondering if these numbers are the original nos. from WWII and where did these planes actually see service?


    thanks

    The 6 digit numbers look like the actual USAAF tail numbers, the ML374GG loks like a squadron code. Do you have photos?

    Oi Lazy.

    Go to The Collings Foundation - Stow, MA click on "Aircraft Collection", click on each required aircraft and then try clicking on the big I for HISTORY

    Fill your boots.
