The 463rd was known as the "The Swoose Group" because its Group Commander, Col. Frank Kurtz, had named his aircraft "The Swoose". He carried that name forward from a B-17D that he flew in the Pacific prior to being named Group Commander of the 463rd. Thanks to www.463rd.org for the information. Basic shipping included to most countries. Additional costs may incur for EURO, South America and African countries.
