Interesting photo of landing accident at Station 597 Langford Lodge on 6 July 1944. 42-7870 "Pappy" was coded LM-R when with the 56th FG and assigned to Maj. Horace C "Pappy" Craig. The artwork here is different from that seen on the same a/c in the 56th FG gallery so it looks like the artwork was redone. At the time of this accident it was with the 312th Ferrying Squadron and the pilot involved was George T Langford. It is possible that the nose band seen here is the yellow of the 62nd FS prior to the adoption of red group markings by the 56th FG.
