The Striped Ape

The Striped ApeThe Striped ApeB-24D-20-CF #42-63981 The Striped Ape, assembly ship of the 448th BG. Seething, June 1944. Thanks to Mr Stephen Adams, who bring us above photo, at last we know how The Striped Ape (1st) looks like. The aircraft replaced You Cawn’t Miss It in the job of assembly ship in June 1944. The machine was condemned for salvage in February 1945, and replaced by B-24H-15-CF, #41-29489, which was also given the name The Striped Ape. We know, from fragmentary information, that the aircraft retained its Olive Drab / Neutral Grey camouflage, on which yellow diagonal stripes were painted. The plane kept all standard national and group markings.
