Not a transportation shooter at all.. While out in the wetlands near the Los Alamitos Naval Air Station, this flew over.

Thanks for the ID

There is writing all over the body, listing and honoring past crew members
There are also a couple of guys looking out the back part of the body

Belongs to the Collings Foundation. Tours all over the US, along with a B17, B25, and sometimes a P51B. They give rides (for a fee) at almost all of their stops. The only other flying B24 is a B24A that belongs to the CAF, based out of Cavanaugh Flight Musuem in Addison, Texas (just north of Dallas).

Nice grab. Bet it sounded real nice; those four big radials.

Thanks everyone, it's nice to have some background on the plane. I sort of figured that it was a touring machine as it was really done up :) ... and yes, it was very distinctive in its' sound.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. .... and Frank if your comment was to me, well, it found me. Right place. Right time. Wrong lens! :)

It's a shame that there are only two left flying. What unit markings is this one wearing?


5D,20D, some lenses and stuff

According to this website (external link), it would appear to be a mix of 466th Bomb Group and 467th Bomb Group of the 8th Air Force.

They've got the understroked "M" but in a white slash instead of a horizontal white stripe.

(For those who may not know, this same B-24 was also known as "All American" and also "The Dragon and His Tail" .. a very popular paint scheme!)
