APOD: A-26 Invader

A rare bird from my archives: a Douglas A-26 Invader spotted way back at a Sun n Fun past. The A-26 proved to be a worthy steed, capable of carrying more munitions further and faster than was expected.

My grandfather had time in the A-26’s cousin, the Martin B-26 Marauder. The Marauder is unrelated to the A-26, though confusingly enough the A-26 was redesignated as the B-26 in the late 40’s.
