Dominick Taddei, who lived on Corsica in 1944 and 1945, sent us several photos of this B-25J from the 445th BS, 321st BG of the 57th Wing. The mission marks on her starboard flank tells that the plane, named “Peggy Lou” by her crew, had completed 129 missions at the time, We found several profiles of this plane, and most showed the girl in the noseart with a blue umbrella. Wrong, says Taddei, who is still a close friend of the plane’s crew chief, Fred Lawrence. “The umbrella consisted of spokes only,” he wrote us in an email. No covering. During it’s time in combat, the plane was commanded first by Capt. Henry Miller, and later by Lt. Malvin S. Rygh. As far as we know, it survived the war but didn’t return to the U.S.

These skins depicts as she was in 1944 with the squadron symbol as the Roman numeral I and 1945 with battle number no. 13.
