Diamond Lil Site Index
B-24 Flight Gallery


I do believe every other bomber I've ever seen parked had the propellers positioned in a "Y" shape, with two blades pointed up and one pointed straight down. When Diamond Lil was parked, the props were arranged the exact opposite -- two pointed down and one straight up.

However, after manually turning the props, the blades were positioned in the more familiar "Y" configuration.
