I love how they named their planes and had artwork to match Bob.
They were long range heavy bombers.
I do like the treatment on this beauty.

The Witchcraft was assigned to the 467th Bomb Group, 790 Bomb Squadron. The bomb graphics on the fuselage indicate the number of bombing runs this particular plane made during its career. Not being sure if the number 130 referred to the runs, I took the time to count them... yep, 130. In WWII, crews were allowed to rotate home (or to another duty) after 25 missions. That being said, Witchcraft obviously remained in operation for many crews and is currently the only Liberator still flying. During WWII, the U.S. lost 218 bombers in Europe, as opposed to 12,037 lost for Germany. This one definitely qualifies for the contest, Robert, particularly for an old war historian like me. Good luck with her.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
