Lemon Drop

Lemon DropLemon DropB-24D-1-CO #41-23699 Lemon Drop, assembly ship of the 44th BG. Shipdham, February 1944. One of nine original aircraft that the 68th BS / 44th BG had brought to the UK. Initially marked as P, the aircraft was changed to WQ●N in November 1943. In the early 1944, after 45 missions, she was withdrawn from combat and became the group’s first assembly ship (aka ‘Cowboy Ship’ in the 44th BG). Unlike other assembly aircraft of the 2nd AD, Lemon Drop retained its turret armament. The machine was painted in yellow and black stripes, and was used for daylight assembly.
