'B' Flight number 1 was an American B-24 Liberator of 'B' Flight that flew bombing missions during World War II, notably a bombing mission on October 3rd, 1942 that softened sea and ground defenses around Oran to prepare for the following ground invasion. It can be seen in Call of Duty 2: Big Red One in the level "Liberators".
