Renamed from STRAWBERRY BITCH

Contributor - Brendan Wood

Info Contributor - Al Blue
An early, brief, one-time paint job applied shortly after the ship arrived in Dayton from storage. Possibly in honor of a Museum visit by Kane.

Never flew on Tidal Wave (1 Aug 43). Originally had the name STRAWBERRY BITCH painted on it when Kane visited (WPAFB in his Honor), then removed.
