A Douglas A-26 Invader recently arrived in Avignon and should be restored. It is A-26B-45-DL s/n 44-34172, built by Douglas in Long Beach, California.
Sold as surplus in 1958, the airframe was owned by several different companies and individuals. It was initially meant to be converted into a Monarch 26 corporate aircraft, but that project was never carried out. Its following owners intended to restore it to its wartime condition, but the restoration never progressed much.
