Before they left their ship in France, the crew of the crashed Consolidated B-24 RED HOT RIDING HOOD salvaged part of the artwork off the side of the plane. Wrapped in a small Nazi flag, they intend to present it to the Crew Chief back in England.

Info Contributor - Bruce E. Albert
The crew was stationed at Attelbridge, England from Mar-Sep 1944. They made a crash landing at St. Mihel, France 5 Sep 44 after being hit by flak while on a bomb run to the Marshalling Yard at Karlsruhe, Germany. This was their 30th and final mission. Fortunately, everyone on the crew survived the crash landing and returned to England, and subsequently to the United States, via the "Queen Mary".
