"This aircraft is believed to be a Consolidated B-24D Liberator due to the fact that it crashed near several other B-24D Liberators of the same or near serial number. This aircraft was found near Wheeler Army Air Force Base, January 1996, in Hawaii. The photo depicts the forward starboard section of a B-24 Liberator painted in olive drab with the number 938 stenciled in yelllow below the navigators window. This section of the B-24 has been recovered for the Questmasters Museum for preservation. Any further information on this aircraft would be greatly appreciated."
