This aircraft, B-17F-1-BO "Pluto" with serial number 41-24384, became missing while on a mission between Port Moresby on New Guinea island and Australia on 26 Mar 1943. All aboard, including Brigadier General Howard K. Ramey, were never seen again.

In 2005, the wreck of a B-17 was found in a remote area of Cape York in the extreme north of Australia which might be this plane.
