On Dec. 8 the CAF Invader Squadron celebrated the 70th anniversary of the unit's airplane, A-26B SN# 43-7140, being delivered to the U.S. Army Air Force. It was built in 1943 at the Douglas plant in Long Beach, Calif. It was the 328th A-26B built at this plant. On March 13, 1950, the aircraft was stricken from military inventory and sold on the civilian market. The full story of the airplane can be read HERE.
The Invader Squadron was formed in February 2009 to restore the Douglas Invader, registration number N240P back to flying condition.
This aircraft is based at Meacham Airport in the hangar of the Vintage Flying Museum in Forth Worth, Texas. More than 75 members of the Invader Squadron work to maintain and keep the airplane flying condition. All squadron members are volunteers. In addition to devoting their time also make additional financial contributions to the project.
