Appearance
Frenisi 104 Seabees

Pictured on the sides of B24 "Frenisi", assigned to the 307th Bomb Group in the South Pacific, was a dedication to the 104th Naval Construction Battalion Seabees. The main nose art picture showed a risqu? nude wearing only a Mexican straw hat and towel and the NCB dedication is usually overlooked as a result.

"Frenisi" became a long running veteran and returned to the USA with more than 100 missions completed and four enemy fighters shot down. On 10th July 1944 the B24 returned to the US to commence another tour but this was non-combat and designed to sell War Bonds.
