Ford XB-906

08/31/2007. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "This aircraft was derived from a 5-AT-C to be entered in a design competition. It featured a single pilot's seat, two open-air gunners' pits with two machine guns each, internal bomb racks and a modified tail. It was flown for the first time in April 1931, but crashed on September 19, 1931, during testing at the factory, killing Ford's chief test pilot Leroy Manning."
