Full US military serial 37-029.
Of the five preserved Bolos, this is the only straight B-18, the others are either B-18A or B-18B models. Another B-18 exists in the Kohala Mountains, Hawaii where it crashed in 1941. Although stripped for parts (the nose turret was used in the restoration of 37-029 seen here) it may yet be recovered for display in Honolulu.
’37-029’ is on display at the Castle Air Museum, Atwater, CA.

Quick Cape Town Fact: Both the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University are leading universities in South Africa. This is due in large part to substantial financial contributions made to these institutions by both the public and private sector.
