Martin B-26 Marauder – 394th Bomb Group - USAAF Art Print
Boreham airfield, just north of the Essex town of Chelmsford will always be remembered for its association with the USAAF 9th Air Force and the B-26 Marauder especially. Opened in 1944, the airfield became home to both the 394th Bombardment Wing and 315th Troop Carrier Group.
The Martin B-26 Marauder had a troubled beginning, becoming known as the “widow-maker” due to numerous crashes and engine failures. From 1944 however the aircraft became one of the most important aircraft in the USAAF arsenal, becoming indispensable during the lead up to D-Day. Here several traverse the perimeter track prior to take-off
