The Martin B-26 Marauder was an American World War II twin-engine medium bomber built by the Glenn L. Martin Company. The first bomber in the Pacific theater and Aleutian Islands in 1942, it was also used in the European Theater of Operations and in the North African Campaign.
The plane distinguished itself as "the chief bombardment weapon on the Western Front" according to an US Army Air Forces dispatch from 1946, and also because the B-26B maintained the lowest loss record of any combat aircraft during World War II. Its loss record stands in sharp contrast to its unofficial nickname "The Widow maker" â€“ earned due to its high rate of accidental crashes during takeoff for the B-26A variant.
