Picked this up this morning, nothing big but it's a pretty cool piece that you don't see to often anymore. It has several signatures and after a quick search I was able to find two of the guys on it, both were in the 303rd BG 359th BS and the one Tsgt Lyman E. Ela Jr flew on the "Queen of Hearts".

Very Cool Fritz!
These are becoming more an more collectible as they become harder to find. Especially nice with the unit info and flying bombers!

Thanks Jerry, I have managed to identify 7 out of the 9 signatures on it and all of the men were in the 359th bomber squadron, mostly flight engineers but one guy was a ball turret gunner.
