  B-26 G Marauder built by Martin. 5,266 were built during World War 2. The B-26 sustained the lowest loss rate of all allied bombers. The Marauder flew 110,000 sorties mostly in Europe. The range was 1,100 miles with 4,000 lbs of bombs. B-26 G Marauder built by Martin. 5,266 were built during World War 2. The B-26 sustained the lowest loss rate of all allied bombers.

Entered service in January 1966 and still maintains speed and altitude records. It served for 24 years while most missions are still classified, just imagine what kind of planes they have now because it was well over a decade before the public knew anything about this plane. It could survey 100,000 square miles per hour back in the 1960s. SR-71 Blackbird built by Lockheed. Entered service in January 1966 and still maintains speed and altitude records.

The United States created its own Merlin engine for mass production in Detroit where over 16,000 were built. The Merlin engine was most known for its unique sound in the P-51 Mustang but also provided power to the Spitfire, Mosquito, Lancaster and even the P-40 in later models.

  B-24 Liberator Strawberry Bitch. The B-24 does not get the recognition that the B-17 does but it was a very formidable bomber. Its extended range made it will suited for all theaters during World War II. The B-24 was meant to be a major upgrade over the previous B-17 bomber. The B-24 was the most mass produced plane of the war, 18,190 were manufactured. B-24 Liberator Strawberry Bitch.

PBY Catalina was a flying boat built by Consolidated. During World War II the PBY would become infamous serving in every role the military could throw at her. Some of its duties included maritime patrol, anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue to name a few. Around 4,000 were built and many still fly today as firefighting. The PBY was prominently featured in the movie Midway were it spots the Japanese carriers. PBY Catalina was a flying boat built by Consolidated.

B-10 Martin bomber is known as the first modern bomber. As post World War I aviation redefined warfare the United States was re-defining bombers in the early 1930's. Although this plane did not server in World War II it was an prototype for future generations of bombers like the B-17. Hap Arnold said this plane was a wonder when it was produced.

The legend of Kilroy Was Here. No one knows where it started, some say that a ship builder named Kilroy used it to mark rivets, some say it was used by inspectors to mark that work that was completed, and so the story continues. All that is really known is that the graffiti Kilroy Was Here because a huge part of pop culture from World War II into the 1950’s. Soldiers most likely picked it up during ship transports to overseas then started writing it to signify semblance of home as they marched through the horrors of war. The legend of Kilroy Was Here.

  F-15 Eagle. Highly maneuverabe which enable it to turn tightly. It can climb to 30,000 feet in around 60 seconds. The thrust output of the dual engines is greater than the aircraft's weight, thus giving it the ability to accelerate in a vertical climb. F-15 Eagle.
