This is to request any information about a B24J Liberator (N224J) that I spotted flying over my neighborhood today at a fairly low altitude. I’m a private pilot and was intrigued at the sight of this majestic 4-engine vintage aircraft flying at about 1,200 feet near my house, about 25 miles north of TTN Airport. I tracked it on “Flightradar24,” and it looks like the flight originated and ended at TTN. From what I’ve read about this aircraft, it appears to be the only one still flying. Does anyone know where it’s based or where I might be able to get a closer look, maybe take a few photos. Any information appreciated. Thanks!

Yep,
It's the last flying "REAL" B-24
It was painted as "All American" (August 1989).
Repainted as "The Dragon and His Tail" in 1998. Last, in 2005 repainted as "Witchcraft."..

Believe Foundation is based in Stow, Massachusetts.
Aircraft are usually on tour....

Was at the Millville Army Airfield (KMIV) a few days ago (end of August) along with some 'friends' .
