This is in reality 44-83624 but was produced too late to see combat in WWII, instead saw extensive service first in a highly secret project that resurrected the idea of using obsolete aircraft as radio-controlled flying bombs (MB-17G) and then as a drone-control aircraft (DB-17G) in the ground-to-air missile development program. After retirement and a seven year restoration she is now on display at the super AMC Museum as 'Sleepy Time Gal' from the 381st Bomb Group.
