Photo of an American B-24h-5-Dt Liberator recaptured by American forces. Originally part of the U.S. 732nd Bomber Squad, the plane made an emergency landing at a Luftwaffe airport in France. The Germans re-marked her and she flew for the KG200 Squad until she was recaptured by Americans in Austria in 1945. The KG200 flew at least 12 captured B-17s, and seven captured B-24s.
