In 1941 Douglas Aircraft Company began work on their twin-engine medium-bomber A-26
Invader. By the end of production there were 2,452 aircraft produced for all variants. The A-
26/B-26 was the only U.S. bomber to take part in three wars, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. The
confusion with the use of the designation B-26 began when the Martin B-26 Marauder was
retired and in 1948 the USAF dropped the ÂÂ"AÂÂ" (Attack) designator so the Douglas A-26
Invader became the B-26 Invader. The A-26 made its first European appearance in late 1944.
In early 1967 the B-26K Counter Invader was delivered to the 609th Special Operations
Squadron (SOS), 56th Special Operations Wing (SOW) based at Nakhon Phanom Royal
Thai Air Base. These aircraft used call-sign Nimrod and tasked with impeding the flow of men
and supplies from North Vietnam along the Ho Chi Minh trail. In November 1969 the 609th
SOS operations ended with most aircraft being sent to the U.S. but B-26K 64-17651 that was
originally built as B-26C 44-34119 is displayed at the KAI Aerospace Museum, Sachon,
