    I'm working on a project and I'm attempting to find any living pilots that have flown the Martin 139 (or one of it's variants). If anybody knows of somebody I'd really appreciate the information.

    Thanks

    That's probably a tall order David. My father worked on one when he was in the Air Corps around 1942 but it was an old non flying heap they practiced taking apart and putting back together. If he was still alive he'd be pushing 93 now. I don't know what exactly you're looking for, but the only thing I remember him saying about the B-10 he worked on was that the bomb bay door retraction mechanism was elastic bungee cords.
