The top photo is of the the Original Dragon and his tail in WWll. The second photo is from a Arizona scrapyard after WWll. The last photo (taken by me in Indiana) is a B-24 Liberator, built in 1944, it has a combat record with the RAF in the Pacific. Abandoned in India at the end of the war, she served as a patrol bomber for India until 1968. Originally restored and flown as “All American”, the aircraft underwent a name and nose art change in January 1999. Renamed “The Dragon and His Tail” to honor the veterans who served in the Pacific, this artwork represents the most extensive, and one of the most widely recognized, nose arts of World War II. The original “Dragon” flew 85 missions with the 43rd Bomb Group 64th Bomb Squadron and was the last B-24 to be scrapped.
