Aircraft history for serial number: 42-95815 (kindly provided by Paul Clouting).
Built at the Glenn L Martin factory at Baltimore, Maryland as a B-26B-45-MA. Accepted by the Army Air Force on 5/11/43. Next flown by New Castle (2nd Ferry Group), Wilmington, Deleware (from 2/12/43, to Patterson Field, Ohio (ATC) from 5/12/43. Then listed at, Louisville, Kentucky (ATC) from 9/12/43, and Godman Field, Fort Knox, Kentucky (from 11/12/43), and assigned to the 391st BG. Flown overseas to the UK via the Southern Ferry Route (Listed as Carribean Wing), departing the USA on 5/1/44. The aircraft record card then lists, SOXO A (Europe - 8th AF) on 5/1/44, and SOXO R (Europe - 8th AF) from 30/1/44. Original group aircraft flown over from the USA by pilot 1st Lt. Robert C Jobe, C-Flight CO. Served with the 391st BG until March 1945 when the group converted to the Douglas A-26 Invader. The final entry on the aircraft record card lists, GLUE CON SAL FEA on 20/3/46. Have also seen this a/c listed as un-named, but has 42-95809 listed as "The Bum Steer", needs confirmation. ADDENDUM: Capt. Jobe flew over in 42-95815. Michael McPeters states that Jobe named 2 aircraft as "Dode Lee" after his wife. It's therefore possible that 42-95815 was the first aircraft that was named "Dode Lee". There are pictures of the aircraft nose art on this website, although there are no other markings to allow positive identification.
