First manufactured in 1937, the Douglas B-18 Bolo was quickly outclassed by more advanced Axis designs. The B-18 was used as an anti-submarine aircraft to patrol the United States’ eastern coast, the Panama Canal, and Alaska but the main contingent of Pacific B-18s was virtually wiped out during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Currently, our Douglas B-18 Bolo is the oldest aircraft in the Wings’ collection.
Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum features more than 50 aircraft and space vehicles. Visit us to see the full collection.
