    Hello, I am trying to find out if there was more than one „Suzy-Q“? And if so, which one did the war bond tour when she came home?

    Once I find the right one, I have a bit mo memorabilia which needs to rejoin the Suzy-Q.

    thank youi,

    Sherwood Parker

      Hello Sherwood,

      this is the only Suzy Q, which did war bond tour.
      Other B-17s named Suzy Q or had this name, went lost in combat.
