World War 2 Bomber B-26 Marauder

In 1941 The Martin Company introduced into the United States Air Force service the B-26 MARAUDER. The aircraft was a bomber designed as a twin-engine monoplane, powered by the PRATT & WHITNEY R-2800 engine, to carry medium sized bombs. The B-26 was known for it`s problems, mostly for accidents during takeoffs and landings, because of that pilots had to fly in unusually high speeds when approaching the runway. The aircraft was used in both Europe and the Pacific theater since 1942 and in 1945 the production was ended with over five thousand aircrafts built.
