41-11616 Arkansas Traveler

Arkansas Traveler, serial number 41-11616, was one of the 23 HALPRO B-24s.  Her RCL was #14.  She was the lead plane on HALPRO's June 12, 1942 raid on the Ploesti oilfields.

Following the creation of the 376th HBG in November 1942, it is not know what her new RCL was.  But it was not #14.

In the spring of 1943, when the RCL were aligned with the squadrons, she was assigned RCL #95.

She flew 22 missions as #14; another 10 as #95.
