Model: B-18 Bolo Registration: FH003
Year: Late 1930's Serial Number:
Engines: Wright 1820 Owner: Barry Baker
Location: Simsbury, CT Photographer: Stoltzfus, Ken
Date: 1958 Present Registration: Present Owner (FAA info):
Notes: I shot this B-18 while our family was on vacation in 1958. Barry Baker was a friend and competitor of my father, in the forest spraying business.

The B-18 was a late-1930's bomber version of the DC-3. I don't think I've ever heard them described as "pretty". This one appears to still have the 1000-hp engines, per the cowling and no cowl flaps. It looks like the props are in the feather position.

Can anyone help me with more information on this aircraft?
