Mincraft makes the "L" model. I am putting one together now. Nice looking model. Has marking for three or four areas of operation. I'm doing the Cina one.

Hope you find it, Don

My grandfather is pictured in front of "Red Headed Woman" with only the number 645. Serving in the Pacific in 44 crew #310. If it is an L modelm then most likely it is; s/n 44-41645? Consolidated B-24L-5-CO Liberator. All data bases I find so far skip 645. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Whoever said the max weight of the Lib was 64,350 pounds [29,250 kg] must never have been in or flown one. I flew 37 missions out of Horsham St. Faith at Norwich and sometines we grossed nearly 80,000 pounds into a strong 5 mph wind. yes 5 mph head wind at takeoff with 49 inches of merc at 4800 rpm.. Try it some time.. To A Blyth @ Norwich.. Drop me a line at B24TopPilot@aol.com. You're my kind of flyer and your three photos deserve an award. I'd like to be there when a B24 reaches 27,978 feet, maybe if not loaded with bombs or if tied to a rocket..

can anyone tell me how many liberators there are left in the world, how many in the states and how many are flyable. I would love to see one over here in the air to fly along side the "Sally B". After seeing Diamond Lil fly into my home town nearly ten years ago feel it a great pity that there's not one here with us as so many flew here during WW11.Where i live i'm surrounded by old WW11 airfields all empty now.
