[edit] Information

The Martin B-26 Marauder was no stranger to controversy. The plane became the first American aircraft ordered directly off the drawing board, an unprecedented action in 1939. In the beginning, the B-26's high wing loading, necessary to provide speed and altitude, made the plane very difficult to fly. The result was an alarming accident rate and two nicknames from the pilots who knew the B-26 well: "The Widowmaker" and "One Day In Tampa Bay". Still, the aircraft survived constant criticism, and when its wings were lengthened and some unforgiving characteristics eliminated, the B-26 Marauder saw service in many war theaters in World War II. The only Army plane ever to drop torpedoes, it became a highly successful medium bomber with a very impressive war record. Here is the inspiring story of the B-26, a celebrated aircraft with a firm place in our nation's history.
