Hey everyone,

I'm sorry for posting again, I hope I'm not spamming in here too much,:D but I'm again looking for an aircraft identification, this time from a B-29 Bomber, shown in a Japanese propaganda newsreel from 28th December 1944. According to the voice-over, it was shot down near Mukden in Manchuria.

The markings on the rudder are "JJ" in a black diamond-shape, and the serial number is 26262.

Thank you very much advance if anyone is able to identify this particulary example, and once again I apologize for posting again here so soon!

Have a great day!

PS... the letters in the black diamond-shape on the fin aren't the JJ but it is number 33.

Thanks again, this is the third time you helped me out!
If they wouldnt show the serial number so prominently in these Newsweeks, I wouldn't have to ask for it every time....^^

And my apologies. Now I feel stupid for thinking it was a JJ haha!
