155 of 536
Commemorative Air Force Airshow 2007. This aircraft was part of an order for the UK, but was involved in an accident in Albuquerque, NM. Consolidated rebuilt it to a transport configuration and it was used as a company aircraft throughout World War II. During this period the aircraft became known as "Old 927". After the war the aircraft flew in South America before being acquired by the CAF in 1967. In 2007 the aircraft was restored to the original B-24A configuration and named "OL 927". (Canon 350D + 100-400 L IS)
