You should also know that there are two ways to reference the tail number on this plane.
1: The OFFICIAL paperwork method is to write 42-94903.This shows the year the plane was built.
2: On the actual tail of the plane this number was written as 294903.The (4) was assumed and it was not used--to save paint and weight!
Use the complete hyphenated number when referencing the plane with archives.
BOMBER'S MOON was assigned to the 844th Squadron of the 489th Group.Tail fin color was bright green with a verticle white stripe down the middle.Fuselage code for this Squadron was 4R.
