'Flak-Bait' survived 207 combat missions over Europe, more than any other American aircraft during WWII and is currently undergoing restoration in the Mary Baker Engen Hangar of the Udvar-Hazy Center. The Baltimore factory completed the aircraft in April 1943 and the USAAF assigned it to the 449th BS, 322nd BG. Lt. James J. Farrell of Greenwich, CT flew more missions in 'Flak-Bait' than any other pilot. He named the bomber after 'Flea Bait', his brother's nickname for the family dog.
