Re: B-17 414th BS colours

Do not know, but could be that the a/c had some special gear onboard ?
RAF a/c that had were marked with a "G" following the serial number. If correct it meant that when on the ground the a/c had to be guarded by armed troops. Perhaps in the Middle East/Mediterranean the American Groups adopted a similar system ?
It could just be a reference to the a/c being a B17G ?
