The Douglas YB-11 started life as the YOA-5 and was as an amphibious reconnaissance-bomber, intended to act as navigation leaders and rescue aircraft for formations of conventional bombers. Only one was built, but it was used to set two world distance records for amphibians.  (Photo from the Lionel Paul collection)
