The B-26 Marauder received the nick name “widow maker” from the numerous training accidents that occurred during early testing of the bomber. The bomber was difficult in the beginning to pilot, but had only a 1% loss rate when it went into combat with trained pilots. The plane started in Australia, North Africa and eventually became heavily used in the European theater. In all, 1,883 were built. Below are key statistics about the B-26 Marauder.
