This is a B-24 Liberator from the 493rd Bomb Group named "Little Warrior". The photo was taken by the waist gunner (Clifford A. Stocking) of another B-24 (named "Green Hornet"). An interesting note is that your photo has the positioning of the burning plane correct. In most copies it has been rotated to be flying level. In reality it was rolling over on its back and just missed taking "Green Hornet" down with it.

 

I have a copy of the same photo in my photostream.
