A-26B Invader

Dekelia-Tatoi, 6 November 2016.

 

A spectacular warbird that we met in a private hangar at Dekelia-Tatoi.

 

N500MR is owned by Sea Link Aviation, a US based company. The owner is in fact Greek shipping magnate Minos Kirakou. The man also owns the PBY-5 Catalina and several other immaculate planes in the same hangar.

 

This Invader was built in 1945 as 44-34769, never saw combat action and was put up for disposal directly after delivery. It had more than 10 different civil owners before is was flown to Greece in 1995. Somewhere during it's history it received a passenger configuration with windows on the starboard side.
