I don't know the story on this autographed warbird, but I bet it's a good one.. the "V Grand 5000" of the 781st squadron of the 465 bomber group Pantanella Italy

  1. This one is easy, it's the "V Grand", the 5000th B-24 built by the Consolidated plant in San Diego, the signatures are those of the workers who built it.

    1. Thanks! I just found that out too, and would have learned from you faster but I've been finding more photos of it

  2. My Dad was the co-pilot of this plane. It survived the Ploesti raid. My dad was the second to last to jump out of it, but I guess the pilot was able to land the plane.
