Appearance
N.C. District 3, G.F.W.C.

This shiny new B17G model looks to be another of the War Department's retouched photos.

Resulting from the 4th War Loan Drive in November 1944, it was purchased with $371,188 bonds by members of the 3rd District North Carolina Federated Women's Clubs in Watauga.

In the 6th War Loan Drive the same group aimed to raise another $172,000 in bonds to fund a PB4Y Catalina flying boat for the US Navy. It is not yet known if this target and purchase was achieved.
