Dragon N52327 (c/n
Now displayed at the
McChord AFB Musuem in early WW II guise, the photograph above
beautiful aircraft was taken at Long Beach Municipal in 1961, whilst
the machine was
still an "executive"
transport with California Oil Company. How'd you like to
blow into your
local FBO in
THAT? Only 38 B-23s were built and several of
those were converted to
transports. This aircraft was built in 1939 with the Army
Air Corps serial number of
39-036. For a true
B-23 example, see my entry under the Military section.
