Added basic aircraft ID to caption
this was originally posted as B-17 42-31081 which was painted Camo, and the nose art was a gremlin riding a bomb
this photo shows the aircraft is NMF, and you can see the beak of the crane carrying the bomb in the nappy.
the name is clearly SONOF-A-BLITZ and not Son-of-a-Blitz.
