Douglas B-23


I believe this group photo was taken upon delivery of the first B-23 to the 17th Bomb Group. Although only 38 B-23’s were built, fully 21 percent of them survive to this day. Doing some quick comparison math, if that same percentage of B-17’s survived, there would be 2,673 of them still around.
