Paul LeTorneau’s B-26 Marauder

Jul 17, 2011 3 Comments by

One of the most impressive warbirds at the 2011 WOD was Paul LeTornean’s B-26 Marauder. Paul enlarged Jerry Bates plans to a 170-inch span, and he powered the Marauder with a pair of Desert Aircraft DA-100 gas engines. Originally it was finished in O.D. but now Paul’s bomber sports an amazing aluminum finish!

 

 Here’s my interview with Paul at the 2011 WOD event.
