art98.jpg (44336 bytes) "Come and Get It"

(Bob Livingstone advised that "Come and Get It" is another B-24D which started with the 43rd Bomb Group, 65th Bomb Squadron and transferred to the 90th Bomb Group, 400th Bomb Squadron.  Serial 42-40941, it went to CRTC & the remains were photographed at Dobodura.)

art61.jpg (45560 bytes) B-24 Liberator, #42-40914, of the 43rd Bomb Group, 63rd Bomb Squadron, before it had a nose turret.  After the turret mod it went to the 90th Bomb Group, 321st Bomb Squadron, who added the name "Golden Lady".  It flew at least 97 missions & was salvaged at Nadzab on 7 November 1944. (Info supplied by Bob Livingstone)

art128.jpg (73566 bytes) DC-5 and tail of a B-24 at Burke. 

(Bob Livingstone believes this photo shows the back end of an LB-30 (rather than a B-24).  Location Burke must be the name of the person surely. This has to be Townsville to have an LB-30 as this is where they were based while armed. Pretty early 1942 shot as by September 1942 they were transports.)
