SEA SISTER OF THE FLYING FORTRESS

The Boeing Sea Ranger (XPBB-1)

New Boeing Bomber Makes Maiden Trip over Lake Washington

ONE OF A KIND!

July 10, 1942 (Front Page only)

This is the only Sea Ranger ever produced, as the Renton, WA Boeing plant was refocused on building B-29 bombers. 
It earned its nickname: "Lone Ranger".


From Wikipedia:

The prototype, designated XPBB-1, made its first flight on 9 July 1942 from Lake Washington.  The aircraft handled very well and was considered technically successful. However, already in 1942 the PBB program had been cancelled: The need for a long-range flying boat had been reduced by the ability of land planes such as the Consolidated PB4Y to fly long-range missions over the ocean, and construction of a small number of PBB-1s would have a negative impact on the production rate of the B-29. The Navy allowed the Army to use the Renton factory for the production of B-29 bombers, in return for the use of another factory in Kansas.

The single XPBB-1 was handed over to US Navy, and was used in trials until 1947, when it was finally retired. Despite suggestions that more aircraft might be built, perhaps by another factory, it remained the single example of the type, and was accordingly nicknamed "Lone Ranger"
