This heavy bomber was acquired through the War Bond sales of $50,000 by citizens of Painesville, Ohio in June 1943. The intention was to purchase the "largest type bomber" but the exact type is not specified. It may have been a Liberator, Fortress or a Navy PB4Y. Anyone with further information is requested to make contact.
