NA4 #1 BOMBLE BEE looks like one of the aircraft passing through Warton after delivery from the US. It probably lost most of BOMBLE when the armorplate was added, so when it arrived at its combat unit it may have had the remainder stripped off to be renamed by its combat crew.
NA4 #2 BOMB-VOYAGE, 8AF
NA4 #4 BOOGIE WOOGIE BOMB BUGGIE, not the similarly named 308BG aircraft where the last word was spelled BUGGY.
NA4 #5 This is not the easiest name to decipher, but I read it as BOOGOW, but what that has to do with Uncle Sam I do not know! The weather indicates 28CG, AK.
N4 #6 BOOTS, a 7th BG B-24D. Photo supplied by Corey Meister whose grandfather, Pershing 'Ping' Woodrow Marlow took the photo.
NA4 #6b BOOZE 'N GINGER; no information
NA4 #6a BORROWED TIME, 376BG
NA4 #7 BOSOM BUDDY, a well-used PB4Y-1P of VD-1
NA4 #8 BOUNCE DRILL, PB4Y-1 in some area not Pacific, ETO or Caribbean maybe.
NA4 #9 BOUNCIN' BETTY was an F-7A, an reportedly assigned to 86PRG. That runway is far too permanent looking for the Pacific.
NA4 #10 BOUNCIN' BETTY later had a Teddy Bear and a couple of rather stylized mission markers added. It would originally have been PRU Blue, but its earlier incarnation is not known.
NA4 #11 Whether BOUNCIN' BETTY II has any relationship with the aircraft above, or even if it is an F-7 is unknown. 11BG is suggested and they had a relationship with the 86PRG
NA4 #12 BOUDOIR COMMANDOS, B-24J-/5-NT of 376BG. Possible serials are 42-78498, '608 or '672.
N4 #13 BOVINE BLUNDER is an unusual one, possibly an F-7B - note that patch uner the nose. The Black underside is another unusual feature.
N4 #14 BRASS HAT, a B-24D-CF looking decidedly Class 26 at Peterson AAFB, Colorado with its undercarriage swivelled through 90 degrees to facilitate the sideways tow. It's not carrying any training numbers so its previous role is completely unknown.
N4 #15 BREEZY, a late model B-24J-CO from the 5th BG
NA4 #16 BROAD-JUMPER has the NWA Mod Centre number on the nose and may well still be in the US. Either that it is at a combat Depot awaiting theatre mods.
NA4 #18 THE BRONX EXPRESS is a B-24J-CO '800-clubber' of 8AF.
NA4 #19 ETO PB4Y-1 BROOKLYN BOMBSHELL
NA4 #20 BUCKET 'O' BOLTS, reportedly 93BG
NA4 #21 This BUCKET "O" BOLTS looks like a black night operator from 492BG
NA4 #22 Later the 93BG BUCKET 'O' BOLTS gained some female artwork,but still no serial for this B-24H-FO.
NA4 #23 This was known as THE BUCK STOPS HERE, but it doesn't appear to be painted on. It would not have appeared at a combat unit looking like this. Physically it appears to be a B-24J, probably a -CF which was destined for the RAF.
