I don't know where "SNB" came from. The FAA says this was originally an RC-45J built in 1943.

RC-45J — In 1962 all surviving US Navy SNB-5Ps were redesignated RC-45J

SNB = Secret Navy Bomber. So called by the students/instructors at Basic Naval Officer School. Pensacola. 1966-8.

Another loving name was Super Navy Bug Smasher.

I'm not familiar with USN designations, but in civilian life iirc this was a Beech 18. Back in the mid 70's, Slate Falls Airways claimed to operate the largest fleet of these...they were on floats for the most part. One 'wheeled' a/c from their fleet had just completed an extensive conversion to air ambulance and was on inaugural return to Sioux Lookout ON from TX following refit, when the gear failed to lower at destination...belly landing followed with moderate damage. They were affectionately called 'Exploder's (Beech Expeditor) I have photos of bent props.
