The sole YB-24, flown to Willow Run by Major L.F. Harmon (who on 17 February 1940 was the first Army pilot to fly the XB-24) to give Ford and Sorenson a close look at what they would be building.
The Army ordered 7 YB-24s (40-696 - 40-702) but before they were delivered to the AAF the first six were sold to the British as LB-30Bs (AM258 - AM263) and only the last of the 7 was delivered to the AAF as the one-and-only YB-24, serial 40-702. The other six serials were then applied to the first six AAF B-24Ds.
