Douglas A-26 Invader

As a young boy I built plastic models of the World War II B-25 attack/bomber. When I saw one of these A-26 Invaders at Bien Hoa airfield I thought I was dreaming. It was a beautiful aircraft with six .50 caliber machine guns and two fixed M-2 cannons. This must have been a dream to fly in an era of jet aircraft.
