To be factually correct it’s a SAAB B18B with those engines. The SAAB B18 had radials 😉

True, Ben.
As you now see from the full entry in the manual, the B 18A photo has radials, the B 18B silhouette carries the DB605s.
I'm not telling the knowledgeable ones anything here; I think that every entry specified the B model. :thumbsup:

If you look forward and outward from the flaps, you'll get to the tips. :hide:

Are you saying that the 3 views which I found are weird, Keith?
