Buddy of mine at works Dad was a TSgt in WWII. He flew with HQ 65th Army Airways Communication System Group in Europe. He said they would fly out and then come back simulating an enemy aircraft to see when the radar system would pick them up.
They flew several different kinds of aircraft but his main mount was a B-25 named Range Rider. He has a few of those small pics his Dad took with some good views of the plane but all the turrets and guns were removed so I can't tell if it was a D version or a J. Serial on the tail reads 428-853 so I am assuming 44-28853. A Google search has only given me the colors for the Squadron badge which was painted on the nose.
If anyone has any more information about this group and the aircraft they used, I would be very interested as I would like to build a model for him (his Dad died several years ago).
Also, if someone has another way to tell which version of Mitchell it is, that would help.
I will try to get a hold of the pics he has and scan them in but hoping for some help/info before that.
Thanks in advance.
