Consolidated B-24 Liberator


This is the Consolidated B-24J Liberator (N224J). The Liberator was faster and had a longer range than the more famous B-17 Flying Fortress. They also made more Liberators. The pictures below show one of the 2 Liberators that still fly today. This one is owned and operated by the Collings Foundation. The first picture is the sign that is placed near the B-24 which gives a brief description of this airplane's interesting history.



These shots show the Collings Foundation B-24 as it appeared on April 21, 2004. It featured 2 distinct sides, "Dragon and His Tail" and "All American".

  


 

The Collings Foundation has since changed the paint scheme on their B-24 to "Witchcraft". This is how it looked on April 29, 2006.
