We have reached our fundraising goal for the production of Diamond Lil's new structural parts!
There has been an amazing amount of participation and generosity from B24 fans and supporters across the globe. In a year of so many challenges for all of us, you have stepped up with donations to fund the production of these parts and keep Diamond Lil flying.
The order has now been placed to begin the manufacturing process for Diamond Lil's new parts. It will take the coming months and into the winter for these parts to be completed, then installed, on Diamond Lil. We anticipate Diamond Lil to be flying again by late spring of 2021, pleasing crowds and educating all once again.
From this point forward, as you see pictures and hear stories about Diamond Lil and the impact she is making on those that see her fly and learn about her role in our victory of WWII - you can feel proud, because you were a key part of making this happen.
Thanks to all for your generous contributions!
B29/B24 Squadron Leader
BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,
Diamond Lil will remain the world's oldest airworthy 4-engine bomber, and one of only two flying B-24 Liberators left in the world.
Over 18,000 B-24 Liberators were built.
