A pair of oddball B-24 Liberators

#1 is the XB-24Q (44-9916) which was used to test the remote controlled guns for the B-47. (The array at the tail says it all)  #2 is the EZB-24M (44-51228) used, as you guessed, for ice research.  The last B-24 in USAF service, the EZB soldiered on until the 1950’s, was salvaged and put on display at Lackland AFB. It eventually wound up at the museum in Duxford, UK.
