Wham Bam

B-24D-1-CO #41-23738 Wham Bam, assembly ship of the 453rd BG. Old Buckenham, February 1944. Original this aircraft was flown operationally with the 330th BS / 93rd BG. Later, in early 1944, it was transferred to the 453rd BG to become that group’s lead formation assembly aircraft. Disarmed and fitted with a ‘glasshouse’ in place of the rear turret, the aircraft was left in its original camouflage with large yellow squares on all surfaces which thus created a chequered pattern. The aircraft saved its original nose-art Bugs Bunny cartoon on both sides of the nose.
