History:

This is a unique opportunity to own one of the last existing Douglas A-26 Invaders that is in its combat configuration. This Invader was never a tanker and was not converted to executive use. It left USAF surplus stocks directly for the Nicaraguan Air Force where it served as a front-line aircraft until the late 1970s. During this time maintenance was performed under the Military Assistance Program at Albrook AFB, Panama, including the installation of an approved spar strap. Since its return to the United States it has been left in its combat configuration, a virtual time capsule, perfect for the warbird collector or operator that wants a true combat configured aircraft. All armament panels, bomb racks, etc. are still intact within the aircraft.  Unlike many Invaders it is still a true single pilot airplane and the FAA still allows single pilot operation. This aircraft went to Europe in the spring of 1945 and may be a combat aircraft, but no record exists of its unit assignment.
