    That has to be a rare photo!

    The group of Douglas B-18 aircraft really stand out at the rear of the flight.

    Now these three photos give a good example of the B-10 and variants.

    The top one, based on the removed front turret, is a B-10M, the second photo looks alot like the B-12 and the third photo sure looks alot like the XB-14

    *edit* last one might be one of the B-12AM variants intended for coastal defense.

    1 - You are correct sir, in the 2nd major configuration for the Tow Target version.
    2 - Originally a YB-10 but converted to B-10B. This was one of the ones used on Hap Arnold's 1934 Alaskan Flight. YB-14 was a/c 33-162
    3 - The one and only B-12A (a/c 33-265) equipped with the 37-15750 EDO Floats that General Frank Andrews set 3 world records with. That particular picture was taking while at West Point.

    Twenty two B-10s were exported to Argentina and when they arrived they were inspected by high ranking generals. In the truck bed at far left is Juan Peron...
