Citizens of Coronado, California sold enough War Bonds to purchase a B24 to be named after the city. The attainment of the target figure was to be marked by a fly over of 12 Liberators on 12 February 1943 to signify the intention to eventually raise sufficient to purchase an entire squadron from donations in the region.
