Convair's B-32 was, depending on who you want to read, the competitor or the backup design to the B-29. It entered service late in the war and was introduced to the reading public a year after the B-29.
Accordingly, there were not many articles or ads dealing with the Dominator. What I have are listed here:
- "Consolidated Vultee B-32 In Last-Round Action" is a terse introduction with the various particulars of the plane.
- "The Consolidated Vultee B-32" gives the short description along with a discussion of the advanced aluminum alloys used in the plane
- "B-32 Convair" describes the B-32 and mentions the first operations of the plane. The article includes 5 photos:
- Convair B-32 with bomb bay doors open, and both the nose entrance door and the aft cabin door lowered. (TB-32-5-CF 2108495 on the ground, seen from 3 o'clock) [ photo ]

- This lineup of B-32s shows vividly the extent of the plane's gigantic tail surface 236 square feet of space extending 32' into the air, giving added stability. (TB-32-10-CFs 2108498 and 2108500 tails on flight line) [ photo ]
- Because of its 32'-high tail, the B-32 claims greater flight stability and maneuverability than any other bomber of comparative size. (TB-32-15-CF 2108522 in flight seen from 10 o'clock) [ photo ]
