This aircraft was returned to the US base at Bradley Field, CT on 7/11/45 and was then sent to Kingman, AZ where it was salvaged. It flew the final mission of the war and the mission list shows no lapse of more than a few days between its missions, indicating the C/L was post war. Also no gun barrels show in the photo. Ironic that the fuselage code, SO-L (S--- Out of Luck) was on another aircraft which also ended up on its belly. (Ken Decker)
