Bear DownBear DownB-24D-165-CO #42-72869 Bear Down, assembly ship of the 93rd BG. Hardwick, August 1944. The second assembly aircraft of the 93rd BG was war-weary Bear Down, a veteran of over 45 missions. Although its assembly ship paintwork was not as expressive as Ball Of Fire the aircraft was not hard to notice! The aircraft had broad yellow bands on the fuselage and outer wings with supplementary blue fuselage bands and wingtips. Note that the front port side bomb bay doors are stripped of paint, probably taken from another Liberator.Bear Down served as the formation aircraft until the end of the war.
