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.
