While perusing our log of the aircraft assigned to the 91st during the war, I found one that hadn't been repainted yet that peaked my interest. Serial Number 42-3043 "Hitler's Gremlin" flew from April of 1943 to August of 1943 before being lost in a sea landing, the entire crew rescued.

Thank you,
