Oops! my mistake, the caption should read sleek and deadly, and by God, its American!
The B-32 was a bet against a failed B-29
program. The bomber entered service during
the last months of the Pacific war against Japan.
All B-32s were scrapped at the end of the war
$30,000,000 dollars worth of bombers paid for by the U.S. taxpayer, melted into those aluminum igots.

DID YOU KNOW...

The first 38 B-32 Bombers to be scrapped were
worth $30,000,000 million dollars, and were melted down into some real expensive aluminum igots. This was just one airplane
design,that was built during WWII, hundereds of thousands of aircraft met the same fate to be scrapped, at wars end.

Airplanes were sold off at rock bottom prices others continued to soldier on with the post-war armed forces into the 50s and 60s. No B-32s ever served in the post-war
USAAF and later USAF. In 1947 one B-32 was
planned for a round the world flight, but it was never carried out.
