The designation "Lexington" was assigned to the B-37 by the USAAF. The B-37 was a variant of the B-34(Navy PV-1).
The B-37 was NOT the USAAF equivalant of the Navy PV-2 Harpoon.

In Western Flying Magazine, February, 1943 on pages 44 and
45 is an article titled "Popular Names For War Planes Made
Official" along with a collage of pictures of the military
aircraft of the day. Listed is the Vega Ventura (B-34).
There are 37 aircraft listed and none of the aircraft listed
is called a Lexington. If I come across any reference to
a Lexington, as I add more aircraft to my web site, I will
post it here.

I have the same question as Mr. J.L. in Florida. The only aircraft that fits the description of the B-34 is the "Ventura." If there is a bomber named the Lexington, then perhaps it may be a variant of this model.

One note about this Photo. There may be another Bomber listed
as the "Lexington", but this is the only one known in the
Military Archives.
