Aircraft history for serial number: 43-34427 (kindly provided by Paul Clouting).
Built at the Glenn L Martin factory at Baltimore, Maryland as a B-26G-10-MA. Accepted by the Army Air Force on 25/7/44. Then flown by Baltimore, Maryland (ATC) from 27/7/44, to the 3rd AF staging area at Hunter Field, Savannah, Georgia (from 27/7/44). Next went to Dow Field, Bangor, Maine (from 5/8/44), from where the aircraft was flown overseas to the 9th AF in the UK via the Northern Ferry Route, departing the USA on 7/8/44. The aircraft record card then lists, GLUE 9AF A (Europe - 9th AF) from 7/8/44, and GLUE 9AF G (Europe - 9th AF) from 13/8/44. Entered combat with the 391st BG / 572nd BS on 5/9/44. The nose wheel collapsed on landing back at A-73 Roye-Amy, France on 24/2/45 after sustaining flak damage over Irlich, Germany. The pilot, 2nd Lt. Preben K Bonde and all the crew escaped unhurt. It is most likely that the aircraft was repaired as it only suffered Cat.3 damage, and is not listed as being salvaged until May 1945. The final entry on the aircraft record card lists, SOXO CON SAL NBD on 20/5/45.
