The Douglas A-26 Invader is one of my favorite Aircraft. I finally got to see one in person at an airshow recently here in Colorado. "The Lady Liberty" is a fine example. She is seen here as a Korean War period night attack version.
World War 2, Korea, Indochina, the Bay of Pigs, Laos, Vietnam, the Congo, South America, fire fighting in the Pacific North West -- the fantastic A-26 has seen it all! The Invader was the most advanced attack plane of World War 2, and her versatility kept her in service in a wide variety if roles for many years. Remarkably compact in size, she could pack up to 22 .50 cal machine guns and 4,000 lbs of bombs - more than a B-25, and do it all with a crew of three.

Lady Liberty is owned by the American Air Power Heritage Museum and operated by the Commemorative Air Force Oklahoma Wing and the A-26 Lady Liberty Sponsorship Group, in Oklahoma City, OK.
