Spirit of Frostproof, Florida



Thanks to James Byrd for sharing this image

A War Bond purchase by residents of Frostproof, Polk County, Florida who collected in excess of $390,000 during the Bond Drive which had a target of just $42,500.

Frostproof, a small community south of Orlando, had the unenviable distinction of having been bombed twice by the USAAF who mistook the town for the nearby bombing range. Fortunately, no one who hurt and their Bond collection indicates that there were no hard feelings!

No mission listing is currently available for this aircraft
