Curtiss B-2 Condor: Los Cóndores pasan.

The B-2 Condor bomber was a development of the Martin NBS-1, the aircraft it was intended to replace. First flown in 1927 and faced against the Keystone XB-1, the Curtiss entry proved to be the superior aircraft. Sadly, though its qualities were superior to the competitors, the higher cost of the Condor limited its production to a mere dozen (plus the prototype).

Assigned to 11th Bombardment Squadron, 7th Bombardment Group at Rockwell Field (California), this flight of four Condors completed cross-country flight to Atlantic City, NJ…precisely the city they are flying over in this magnificent in-flight photo.
