Image by Hawkeye UK
Full US military serial 37-029.
Of the five preserved Bolos, this is the only straight B-18, the others are either B-18A or B-18B models. Another B-18 exists in the Kohala Mountains, Hawaii where it crashed in 1941. Although stripped for parts (the nose turret was used in the restoration of 37-029 seen here) it may yet be recovered for display in Honolulu.
’37-029’ is on display at the Castle Air Museum, Atwater, CA.
