    Always liked the look of the B-23. They use to have one (converted to a transport) sitting out side of the Air Force Museum. Not sure if it's still there.

    Yes the AF museum still has their Dragon. Kermit Weeks has one and I know of at least one other at a satellite USAF museum that has one with the tail gun in it.

    I read in Air Classics that Dolittle wanted to use the 23 in place of the 25 in the Hornet raid, but the wing span was too wide.

    The first time I saw one I thought it was a twin engined B-17
