Sheridan Express

This B25 was assigned to 341st Bomb Group's 491st Squadron based at Yangkai Air Base in China in 1945. It was named to mark the morale boosting tour of movie stars Ann Sheridan, Mary Langdon and Ruth Dennis. Sgt John Johns, member of 22nd Bomb Squadron, painted the superb portrait artwork shortly before Sheridan's arrival at the base.
