This B-52H (Serial No. 60-033) was the wing
commander's aircraft flown by Col. Michael Loughran while he commanded
the 416th Bomb Wing, 9th AF, ACC, Griffiss AFB, Rome, New York, from
La France Libre was originally the nose art found on a 416th B/G A-20
that flew 100 missions in support of operations to drive Hitler's armies
from occupied Europe during WWII.
La France Libre, B-52H (Ser. No. 60-033) wore these same markings to
honor the memory and sacrifices of the men of the 416th Bombardment
Group in WWII.
