Hi all. I have uncovered a really cool WWII calender from a few years ago that my mom gave to me. For most of the days, it has an interesting piece of trivia about WWII. I plan on posting that piece of trivia each and every day (hopefully http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ). So, without further ado...here is the WWII trivia for Dec 28th:

On this date in WWII history:
December 28, 1939: The first flight of the Consolidated XB-24 "Liberator" bomber prototype.

Cool, eh?

I've been inside the CAF's B-24 "Diamond LiL", which is one of the earliest variants sold to the RAF.

You have to duck way down to get under the Davis wing to get to the cockpit. Not a pleasant thought to realize that during missions that thing was loaded with fuel.
