Photo Comment

This was one of 296 B-24s completed at Willow Run during Dec. 1944 and given the USAAF serial 44-50206. Allocated to the RAF, as KN751, under the Lend-Lease agreement she was ferried to India and saw action in SE Asia until the Japanese surrender. She then went on to serve with the Indian Air Force, as HE807, in a maritime patrol role for almost twenty years. In 1974 she was flown to the UK after being donated by the Indian Govt. to the RAF Museum.
