    Thanks Hot spot. I wrote the other note first but was not signed in. I looked at the sites and found some good stuff on the B-24s and the C-87 type transports. It is hard even with all the stuff on the web, the liberator was just not marketed like the B-17. But I like it more. It was just more versital, like the Halifax.
    Thanks for the Halifax stuff too, I had not found much on that. As for pics, they are rayer. If have tried to email the RAF costal comand, but that did not go anywhere.

    Again thanks for the help. Also, any one elts want to coment on these two great but under loved workhoarse aircraft!!!!

    To the Lancaster Kicks Ass: Thanks for the support of the B-24. Yes I would take it over the B-17 for range and payload. I even think that it was good for survivability even with its problums. I have some more info and some picks. But this is not the site for debate, unless we need to start now? The Halifax was a favorate RAF Heavy.

    My Favorate RAF 4 engine bomber!! It was very adaptable glider tug, bomber coastal Comand, and transport for troops, paratroops, and cargo!! It dose not get the love or credit that it should from the general press.

    For all of us few on this thread or to share with others, I have a question about nose art. I know that the USAAF painted up bombers and fighters with all sorts of images and names, to the point that the Air Corps was a little upset. But did the RAF have the same practice? If so are there any pictures?

    So if you disagree with my opionion that the B-24 is a great bomber then what would you say to replace it? The Pe-8 or maybe the Halifax?
