History[edit | edit source]

Built under licence by Douglas Aircraft at Tulsa.

While on a practice training mission - their first mission of any kind - the crew[N 1] got lost, and ended up with 41-28641 being damaged by flak, forcing a crash-landing at a Luftwaffe airfield. Repaired by the Germans and flown by KG200, the aircraft was recaptured at Salsburg, Austria in May 1945.[3]
