Ol’ 927, B-24A Liberator Commemorative Air Force, Seen here at the 2010 Airsho Midland Texas
This aircraft, built in May 1941, is the 25th B-24 produced by Consolidated Aircraft at their San Diego facility. The British and French had ordered a large number of the aircraft in 1939 and 1940 before the Army Air Corps had taken delivery of any production aircraft. With the fall of France to Germany, the British picked up the French order of 6 LB-30A’s. These aircraft were diverted from the YB-24 service test program leaving 1 YB-24 for a test aircraft. The next 20 B-24A aircraft were produced for the Army Air Corps, but were diverted to the British and redesignated the LB-30B, also called the Liberator 1. AM-927 (Army Air Corps serial number 40-2366) is the 18th aircraft of that order of 20.
