    Hello, I am trying to gather information and any photos of a B-24 named "Sky Wolf", that my father in law was the crew chief on. He was stationed in the South Pacific from 1941-1945 in New Guinea, the Phillipines, and Guadalcanal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Looks like you have a great site here! Thank You, Tim

    Thank You! I am certain this is the plane, as the nose art matches the one photo I have of him standing in front of the aircraft. And thanks for the link to the B24 site.

    You're quite welcomed. I found my kid's great-grandfather's airplane on that site a number of years ago, it's a wealth of information. I also see that the aircraft either went missing or was lost in April 1944.
