"Winnie the Pooh"

Douglas-Tulsa B-24H-15-DT Liberator

s/n 41-28880

Photo was most likely taken sometime from July to August 1944 while assigned to 18th BS, 34th BG. The artwork of a baby bear and part of the name was removed while plane was assigned to 486th BG. That is when the shark mouth was added. This was the plane's second assignment to the 34th BG. She ended her 8th Air Force career with the 406th Night Leaflet Squadron where she was painted gloss black and renamed "Umbriago".
