Consolidated B-24 Liberator PB4Y-1

The picture below, left is a Consolidated PB4Y-1 Liberator. This aircraft was scratch built in 1996. Had many flights before being refurbished as a B-24J. The "Dragon and His Tail" was sold in 2001 and crashed at Bomber Field in Texas later that year by my good friend Jeff Quesenberry. Two engines went out on the same side shortly after takeoff. Results were unavoidable.
