This is another photo of the A-26C bomber from my recent trip to the Pacific Coast Air Museum.
The Butler Hanger that houses the plane has quite an interesting story of its own. It was built for the Army Air Corps in 1944 and 20 years later it was featured in the movie, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Legendary stunt pilot, Frank Tallman, flew a Twin Beechcraft plane through this hanger three times to get the stunt on film. Three words came to my mind when I heard this story: Nerves of Steel.
Here’s a video clip of the stunt.
