I don't know on how saying it: my first thought was a B-25 on steroids or the B-25 is a lean B-24.

Close to my home there is a Commemorative Rock along a river where these poor young B24 crew have been shot down killed by the german DCA, returning from a bombing night mission. I guess two or three survived.. I often have a look to they name..
At Sebring, FL, airport, waiting for a fly-by of this aircraft, I was talking to two elderly veterans who'd both been captured after parachuting into a minefield. (!) Because of the direction I happened to be facing, my view was suddenly filled by a steeply-banked B-24. (Eek!) The first in the crowd to see it, I shouted, "WHOA"!

Definitely worth waiting for. :)

Flew on this Liberator, their b-17, and b-25 Mitchell over the last 4-5 years. Saving up for p-51 but now heard they are restoring me-232 so ???? tough call. I will scrounge up some pics too but I love this one. Very nice.

My wife;s father was an instructor pilot in one of these. Last year we took a 30" flight out of Cecil Field (VQQ) in Jacksonville. An oil leak sprang up on the nose gear hose and our short flight went on for two and a half hours!!
Hydraulic fluid all over the inside of the plane and all of us. Wonderful ride. Enough fluid for one and one only application of the brakes when we landed. Having an 11,000 ft. runway helped! Listening to four 1830's was great.
