Possibly this aircraft was 42-3259, named as "Snafu" when it transferred to 546th squadron. However, whilst 42-3259 is known to have carried the name "Snafu" no photographs have been traced which prove that this is the same aircraft, or carrying this name. If you have any information related to this aircraft we would be grateful to hear from you.
