After combat service, this plane became the second assembly ship for the 491st BG at North Pickenham. It crashed, exploded and burned 5 Jan 45 near Swaffham after taking off in a snowstorm to lead the assembly of the group. A second B-24 crashed minutes later because of the icy conditions and the mission was cancelled.
