    It is a Burnelli CBY-3 designed by Burnelli who specialized in lifting bodies construction was done by Canada Car the photo was in 1947 while looking it up I came across another of his designs from they look pretty wild and ahead of their time the bomber called the A 1 was 1939 and the fighter 1947
