first date: 29 September 1943 - Taken on strength, at Gander.

 

Ex USAAF B-24D-25-CO serial number 41-24236.  General note on the first RCAF B-24Ds (3701 to 3704):  Received second hand from USAAF, in very poor condition and without all operational equipment.  Mostly used only for training and transportation by RCAF.  Initially operated in USAAF camouflage.  The designation Mk. V was never officially used by RCAF.  These aircraft were generally known as "Brazilian Liberators", in the belief that they had come from a USAAF unit based in Brazil (not confirmed by US records).  Operated by No. 10 (BR) Squadron, RCAF Station Gander, Newfoundland.  Went missing on flight from Gander to Mt. Joli, PQ, on 19 / 20 October 1943.  Aircraft was diverted to Dorval because of poor weather at Mt. Joli, wreckage not found until June 1946.  24 fatalities, including most of the crew of Liberator 595, on leave after sinking U-341 a few weeks earlier.
