Photo Comment

Entered service with the US Army Air Force around 1943 as 43-48608. To the Belgian Air Force as K11 (and markings OT-CWF). To the French Air Force as 348608. Later to F-RAMB and F-RAOO, but I'm not sure if this was with a private owner or as code with the Air Force. To the Israeli Defense Force as 016 with markings 4X-FNN. Exported to the USA and became N47SJ in September 1999.
