    Hunting for photos of "Borrowed Time" a P-61A with the 422nd. 25547 is the tail number. I have seen the one photo in Aircraft of the Aces: P-61 Black Widow Nightfighers, but haven't seen any others (real photos that is, not illustrations). Thank you for your help.

    Thanks! Trying to establish if they eventually painted it glass black, as the 422nd adopted on most of its aircraft. The photo from Black Widow in Action is hard to tell, but looks as if it might have been all black. I know the earlier photo from P-61 Black Widow Units of World War 2 was supposed to be an Olive Drab plane at the time of the photo. I know sometimes illustrations are not always historically correct, so was hoping to gain more photographic sources :) It is amazing what photos people can find.
