Spotted For Sale: 4,000 HP Douglas A-26 Invader - Budget Priced!

Dual control and glass nosed Douglas A-26 for sale at

 It's true, I haven't done the research to confirm this, but could there possibly be another way to buy a 4,000 hp flying machine for just $160,000? I can't imagine it. I'm sure the 'care and feeding' costs are pretty astronomical, but this beast looks like an awful lot of fun for pretty cheap. It's got nine seats too so you can be sure to take a nice batch of friends along while you turn buckets full of cash into the greatest sound on earth.

 So if you're in the market for an affordable yet hardcore Warbird, I suggest you hop on this Douglas A-26 Invader with the glass nose and dual controls asap. It was built in 1945, so it might have missed actual WWII action, but it looks like it did a lot of work in Korea and then spent 26 years as a firefighter.

 I'm just thinking that sitting in between two Pratt & Whitney R-2800's has got to be about the most amazing place to spend an afternoon! So, if you happen to buy this Invader because you learned about it here, please schedule me up a ride so I can see exactly what that sounds like! Thanking you in advance : )


Smoke system and dual controls - you need this Douglas A-26 Invader!

I couldn't afford it if it was free. But I'd take it anyway. Beautiful plane. Wish I could!

While I was in the Air Force I was a crew chief and flew right seat on one of those babies, I+
never tired of it. My 26 was 44-35466. We flew out of Perrin AFB at Sherman, Tex then Vance AFB Enid Okla. From March 1952 until I transferred in early 1954. For Larry Overstreet- If you ever sat between two R-2800s and got the feel of the bird in a climb ,tight turn or stall. You have not lived. It is one of the most honest aircraft you could fly., but if you
don`t let it know who`s boss she will kill you.
