Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

Consolidated LB-30B

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)
