458 Bomb Group Horsham St Faiths, England. 200th mission Target Berlin 26-02-1945 Monday

From September 1942 the airfield was used by the USAAF. Groups based here included the 319th Bomb Group, the 56th Fighter Group and the Liberator-equipped 458th Bomb Group, which operated from the airfield from early 1944. Horsham St Faith was handed over to RAF Fighter Command in July 1945, and continued to be used by the RAF well into the Cold War, home to Gloster Meteor jet fighters. The RAF left the airfield in 1967, and the site was redeveloped as an airport: Norwich International. Horsham St Faith | American Air Museum

That's an unattractive and crude looking conversion.

But are those latch's on the rear section of the nose fairing? Could it be removable for ease of cargo loading/unloading?
