I was pretty young the first time I went to the EAA museum and saw one of those. It made me nausious then, and still makes me nausious today.

This aircraft was operated by someone in Holland for a few years. But, our beloved aviation inspection had decided in all of their wisdom that this beautifull aircraft was of no historical value to us so, the owner was forced to sell it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

I wonder if it's the same plane that appeared in BAA BAA Black Sheep season 1..

For the money, I'd rather have a B-25 Mitchell.

There are loads of A-26s around, perhaps that's why they are so reasonably priced.

I do believe that one belonged to Tallmantz. It was also used in Murphy's War (A very good movie for DuckNuts). That Duck got a lot of flying time over the years. Don't know current status (I know at one point it was for sale and needed a lot of work.)

P.S. I'm not sure they'll get their asking price . . .

1.5 MIL.......Hmmm I wonder how much of the asking price will go back to Grumman for some sort of resale\royalty fee? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Been in love with the ducks ever since seeing murphy's war....yeah their butt ugly but there's just something about them that tugs at your heartstrings.
