Initially 8/479 (DAS) modified to Carpetbagger configuration (DSA) and then: 8/801/406 call letter B, became: 8/492/858 call letter B, transferred to 856th BS, call letter O.

*Photo was taken summer of '99 in Norway where COOKIE (42-40549) went down on 7 Apr 45, fitted with a vertical stabilizer which had been salvaged from US EXPRESS (41-23674). The gloss black paint has all gone and the 93rd BG markings have been so "weathered", but you can see the original S/N / "RCL" (123674 "U").
