I know the Boeing B & W has already been used, but this one sure looks like it , to me at least.

B&w

This looks like the reproduction B&W built for the Boeing anniversary. It had many changes from the original to make it safer to fly.

The original B&W were taken on by the US Navy but were rejected. They ended up in New Zealand just aafter the war.
