. This unusual visitor to LGW is a Douglas B-23 modified to a UC-67 for utility transport use.. the B-23 was designed by Douglas to compete with the B-17 but failed to win favour. First flew July 27 1939 and only 38 built, of which 12 were converted to UC-67 standard. According to J Baugher's Aircraft Encyclopedia, the B-23 was a development of the B-18, mainly by adding DC-3 wings and bigger engines to the B-18, which itself was a bomber version of the DC-2.
