Burberry Outlet Brand was founded in 1856 when 21-year-old Thomas Louis Vuitton Outlet, a former draper's apprentice, opened his own store in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. By 1870, the business had established itself by focusing on the development of outdoors attire.In 1880, Michael Kors Outlet introduced in his brand the gabardine, a hardwearing, water-resistant yet breathable fabric, in which the yarn is waterproofed before weaving.Michael Kors Outlet Store was the original name, but then the company soon switched to using the name Michael Kors Outlet, after many customers from around the world began calling it Michael Kors Outlet Online of London. This name is still visible on many older Louis Vuitton handbags products. In 1891, Burberry Sale opened a shop in the Haymarket, London, which still exists and until recently was the site of Michael Kors Handbags outlet corporate headquarters. Now the headquarters are at Horseferry Michael Kors Outlet just behind Houses of Parliament, Westminster (London).In 1999, Michael Kors Outlet Online changed their marketing name to Michael Kors Outlet. Most of their items changed too, but many Louis Vuitton Sale still had the Burberry Outlet Online name.

Proposed high-altitude medium bomber with pressurized crew cabin. The first prototype was first flown on April 26, 1942. Aircraft was to be fitted with remotely gun turrets, using periscopes on fuselage top and bottom, which are best visible on the third photo.

The second aircraft was a high-altitude photo reconnaissance aircraft alternatively fitted with a camera package in the bomb bay and designated NA-67 XB-28A (USAAF s/n 40-3058, c/n 67-3417).

Both types were cancelled, the second aircraft crashed into the Pacific Ocean on August 4, 1943. Several sources called it the "Dragon" but it never officially was given that name."

I have not found anything on the whereabouts or fate of the second plane, keep looking, somebody knows something. I have found some more photo's by Mr. Klein as was this article. Many thanks to Mr. Klein. I will submit some more photo's if it allows it.
