The world’s premier medium range bomber served in every WWII theater of operation and was also employed in post-war civilian operations.  Society members hail from all over the world and represent all of the wartime Allied powers and many other nations.

This site also provides information about the B-26 Marauder Historical Society and Pima Air and Space Museum, which houses our archival materials and other related collections.

It is a little-known fact that the Martin B-26 Marauder was employed not only by the United States Army Air Forces, but also by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, British Royal Air Force, South African Air Force, and Free French Air Force. The Royal Australian Air Force also played an instrumental supporting role during the early days of WW II.
