Martin B-26 Documents & Manuals


The Martin B-26 Marauder was one of the major American medium bombers of World War II, serving with distinction in all major battle theaters.
The bomber had high take-off and landing speeds due to the high wing loads of the aircraft. This resulted in several training accidents with pilots at MacDill Field, where new bomber groups trained, nicknaming the plane ?the widow maker.? In response to these early problems, a number of steps were taken, including better trainers and a number of design improvements.

In the hands of experienced pilots, it performed very well and had one of the lowest loss rates in the USAAF.
