Green Hornet


Green HornetGreen HornetB-17F-90-BO #42-30145 Green Hornet of the 486th BG. Sudbury, 1944. From 7th January 1944 #42-30145 was on loan to the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough for ‘range tests’. Returned to the USAAF in February, the aircraft was assigned as a hack with the 486th BG, where it was stripped of its armaments and had all its turrets removed. It was painted bright green with dark green decorative elements and named Green Hornet. Its main function was to perform communication relays, weather observation and transportation, but some uncertain records noted that Green Hornet was used as the Group’s formation assembly ship. If this was true, it would be the only case of an assembly ship being used in the 3rd AD.
