    Lovely pics :thumbright:

    The top pic of the A26 shows how little visibility the pilot had sideways and down. The early versions with the flatter canopy must have been a nightmare to fly in formation when the weather was poor.

    Which is why General Kenny didnt want them for the 5th AF and later the FEAF. They were useless for low level work.

    Great shots, they sure didn't waste time getting the A-26 back in the air. That's the one that the nose gear collapsed at air venture this year and bent the props and scuffed the nose.

    I think Chino is in May so that would put this photo prior to the Oshkosh nose gear collapse.
