My dad's "Fightin' Sam" is definitely a B-24D(we have lots of original paperwork). Witchcraft was labeled as such(B24J) when I visited it in PA last summer--in fact, CelticHeart said her dad was a top turret gunner on Witchcraft(before it was refurbished)-- Check out this link--says Witchcraft is a B24J http://www.collingsfoundation.org/tour_b-24j.htm Check out this link—

Dad made sure all 3 of his daughters got a similar picture. Since he was the flight engineer/crew chief, he got to be the one on top in the middle of the plane! I do digress . . .
Anyway, I know you know tons more about planes than me--I can really only speak to knowing that the Fightin' Sam was a B24D. Brings back nice memories thinking about my dad. Have a great weekend!
