A-26B flies high through the skies

The A-26B shown in flight here from the Capt. Joseph J. Merhar Jr. photo collection was part of a program by the Army Air Corps, which ordered three prototype aircraft in mid-1941, each designed for a specific role. The A26B had many changes and improvements while in production. With the end of World War II, all A-26 contracts had been cancelled, but the planes continued to serve as the Army Air Force’s primary light attack bomber.
