Martin B-26B Marauder seen in The Air Force Story.

The Martin B-26 Marauder was a World War II twin-engine medium bomber built by the Glenn L. Martin Company. First used in the Pacific theater in early 1942, it was also used in the Mediterranean theater and in Western Europe. After entering service with the U.S. Army, the aircraft got a reputation as the "Widowmaker " due to the early models' high rate of accidents during takeoff and landings. The B-26 became a safer aircraft after aerodynamics modifications and design changes (increase of wing span and incidence, to give better take off performance, and a larger fin and rudder) and ended World War II with the lowest loss rate of any USAAF bomber. A total of 5,288 were produced between February 1941 and March 1945; 522 of these were flown by the Royal Air Force and the South African Air Force.
