I located a picture of a B-24 from the 307th Bomb Group, 372nd Bomb Squadron named THE WICKED WENCH (42-40863). My uncle's crew, the Coleman Crew, flew THE WICKED WENCH on a number of missions from April to June 1944. However, they were flying a brand new B-24, #598, the day they were shot down on June 25, 1944 over Yap Island. I met the widow of the navigator, Martin B. Unger, back in 2005. She was the first person to tell me that she thought the name of the Coleman B-24 was THE WICKED WENCH. The crews often flew different planes on missions but had preferred planes with the squadron inventory. I can only assume THE WICKED WENCH was the preferred plane of the Coleman Crew.
