    I seeking info about a B-17 named "Spirit of Columbus"
    Info that I have. By 1943, the Columbus MS "Buy a bomber War Bond" campaign reached nearly 2.5 million, earning it a B-17 named "Spirit of Columbus"
    The bomber took its place on the fighting fronts in 1944.
    What is the serial number of the B-17?
    Where was it assigned?
    What happened to it?
    Thanks in advance
