DumboDumboB-24H-20-CF #41-50288 Dumbo, assembly ship of the 466th BG. Attlebridge, January 1945. At the end of 1944 the 466th BG needed a visual lead aircraft for a pre-dawn formation assembly. In January a decision was made to convert Dumbo for the task. At the time the aircraft was declared war-weary. It was lightened with the D-style ‘glasshouse’ nose, and modified rear section carrying navigational lights. Note that the top turret retained its armament. The profile is partially reconstructed at the tail-end section.
