MOUNT 'N RIDE was a B-17G-20-BO (42-31585) of the 91st Bomb Group. She landed at Dübendorf in Switzerland on 16 March 1944. The aircraft was piloted by 1/Lt Robert C. Mersereau.
USAAF ground crewmen and Swiss air mechanics posed with the bomber during the Summer of 1945 while she was being prepared to return to England.
