Douglas B-18A Bolo "shark nose" bombers on the flight line. Only 217 of these planes were built.

My good friend Peter Marini was an enlisted pilot in the 6th AF and flew the B-18 on patrol for German subs off the southern coast of the US during WWII. He also flew the O-47 and L-5 on patrols. Peter was guest of honor in my MB and CCKW during Memorial Day and Veterans Day parades for the past two years. He passed away last August at the age of 91.
