Titles: Martin B-26 Marauder No’s 1 to 3

Designed to a demanding US Army specification for a high-speed medium bomber, the B-26 quickly acquired a reputation as a “hot-ship”. Following a careful investigation, changes to the aircraft to improve low-speed handling, and changes in handling techniques meant the aircraft went on to record the lowest attrition rate of any US aircraft operated in Europe by the 9th Air Force. Unlike other WW2 types however, the B-26 was rapidly removed from service at the end of WW2.

We offer three titles for this aircraft, covering most variants of the B-26. Each title costs US$9.95. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
