Notes:

This 1940 Consolidated Vultee RLB3O - '01-927' - 40-2366 should have been delivered to the Royal Air Force as AM927. Records show that in 1941 it was damaged in Canada and not delivered. Instead, it stayed in the US until 1947 with the Consolidated Vultee Corp., in San Diego, California registered as NL24927. From Nov. 1948-1958 is served the Continental Can Co. in Morristown, New Jersey registered as N1503 then on April, 11th, 1959 to Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) registered as XC-CAY until 1967 where it then became property of the Confederate Air Force in Harlingen, Texas until 1990 and registered at N12905. Now it is part of the American Airpower Heritage Flying Museum in Midland, Texas which I suppose is aka: The Commemorative Air Force and part of CAF B-29/B-24 Squadron. It started its career as a Consolidated B-24A-CO Liberator but has also been a Liberator Mark I, a LB-30A, a RLB-30, and now back to it's original state. It has been known as 'Diamond 'Lil' and now 'Ole 927'. Seen here at Aviation Nation 2007. That is all...
