    Quitchurbitchin DF-E actually stayed with the 324th as a hanger Queen until late 43. It was assigned to the Klotz crew which flew several missions in her in Dec, 1943 and Jan 1944. Many of the missions were unsuccessful, bad oxygen system, run away props, bomb bay unable to open, etc. DF-E was sent to replacement depot in Jan 1944 and Klotz crew was assigned to Liberty Belle (DF-M) in Feb 1944.
