Night Clubber

Painted with the distinctive black underside seen on many of the latter 308th Bomb Group Liberators, this B24L sported a bikini-clad girl in top hat with a wicked looking cudgel over her shoulder offering an alternative vision of a night clubber.

This nose art was signed by Howard Colvin in his 2-line block (seen by the left knee). The back underside suggests the plane flew "Hump" missions but may also have seen combat. Further information is sought on its missions and crew(s).
