Lawrence Packard, whose father served with the 8th PRS, advises that "Limping Lizzie" 41-2156 appeared in the 1945 Warner Brothers movie "Objective Burma", the opening scenes of which were filmed at one of the 8th PRS bases in New Guinea. Lawrence also advises that "Limping Lizzie" force landed on a beach (also mentioned in "The Eight Ballers") and was subsequently flown out by the C.O. of the squadron. During the take-off, the aircraft struck a log and leapt into the air, after which it became more commonly known as "Leaping Lizzie".
