Hello, the plane on page 1 (1-2-4) is the B-24 "All American" which is owned by Bob Collings of the Collings Foundation of Stow, MASS. Recovered in India it is former Lend-Lease to the RAF in WW II. Restoration partly done by volunteer effort and then completed (some work had to be done over)at Bombertown in Kissimmee, FL. I'm not sure if it was this plane or the B-17 "909", which Collings also owns, that ran off the end of the runway in Stow, MA on landing several years ago. Great aircraft and superbly maintained. Collings also owns, or did own, a gull wing Corsair (F4U)which was also restored in Kissimmee.
Fantastic site, keep up the great work.
