    Took these pics along with the RAT at the Flying Heritage Collection in Everett WA.

    The last of its kind. Jerry Crandel wrote a book about the plane.

    Two I believe. The D-13 and a D-9 at the Air Force Museum. Until recently they had their wings switched.

    That's awesome! Where's this machine located? Is it or will it be flyable?

    Kris, don´t you know if they have ever flew it?
    It´s nice to see those birds in the air but I prefer static display. It is too dangereous to fly them and it´s a great risk. These birds deserve to stay in the museums for the future generations.
