    Shootin' In was one of the squadron's most durable and reliable aircraft, completing 135 combat missions by the war's end. Number 42-95857 was delivered to the 387th Bombardment Group in Essex, England in early 1944. She was assigned to Lt. Asa Clark, who with crew named her Shootin' In. The name derived from an expression used to describe a quick trip to London on an overnight pass; airmen would say they were "shootin' in" to London. She was scheduled for her first mission on March 18. On August 22 the Group moved to France, the first B-26 unit to arrive on the continent.
    On April 19 Shootin' In flew her final combat missions, numbers 134 and 135. In October Shootin' In was ferried to storage in Landsberg, Germany with the rest of the Group's aircraft. She was among the many B-26s systematically scrapped at Landsberg in the spring and summer of 1946.
