I share with you some photos of a Boeing B-17 bomber with an exotic and unusual camouflage. Does anyone know if this plane entered service and what the function of this painting? I count on your visit.

I knew about the assembly ships, also heard them called rally planes. Didn't know about the Judas Goat term, very appropriate. BTW, we had some WWII bombers at a local airport this past weekend. It included the world's last airworthy B-24, named Witchcraft.
