Welcome to IMPDb!
Upgrades are done and editing is back on!
Dedicated to identifying aircraft throughout Movies, Television, and Video Games!
The next lines are only hypothesis as the documentary doesn't show the whole Consolidated LB-30.
We can't see the registration but the color scheme and the nose artwork could help to identify it. The engines with their circular section are clearly the Pratt & Whitney R-1830-33 radials used only on the 21st Liberators (LB-30 and B-24A) -all the others B-24 have elliptical engine cowlings-.
It could be N1503 (which has the same lines and colors on a picture). But which was the Airline ? Did they owned several LB-30s or this single one ? If it's really the single one, it's means this plane was first registered BEFORE as AM927. Once the peace back, this LB-30 was sold to the Contintental Can Company, and flown as an executive transport for about 10 years (as N1503 then). Sold to Mexico, it worn XC-CAY registration before being bought by the C.A.F. in 1967 (following registrations were N12905 and N24927). Now part of the Commemorative Air Force, it is widely known as Diamond Lil. She was featured in Beautiful Dreamer (2006 film).

As it's said on this webpage:
This aircraft, photographed at Torrance Municipal Airport, Southern California, in 1959 was owned by Continental Can Company.
As the livery seems exactly the same, that means this company already owned the plane (or same model) in 1953. Sixcyl 01:41, 6 December 2014 (MST)
