N11 #9 No identifiable name, but the image came captioned as GRIM GREMLIN. I think it MIGHT be 7BG, B-24D in the 41-24xxx range.
Ground Gripper, B-24D of 7BG. It was said of the B-24 that it was only the curvature of the earth which allowed it to leave the ground.
Typical of 10AF, the serial has been painted out and an inventory number 62 added. Fire Damage obvious.
More evidence of fire damage.
