The dominant plane is, of course, the JRM Mars; above it are the PBM Mariner and the B-26 Marauder. Just back of the Mars are the A-30 Baltimore on the left and the famous China Clipper on the right. Further back is one of the most famous of all Martin planes, the B-30 which was purchased by governments all over the world. Still further back are the BM-1, the first Navy dive bomber and the first plane built at the Middle River plant; the MB-2, the Army’s standard bomber developed at Cleveland during World War I and made for several years; and the TT, the Army’s first trainer, built in Los Angeles. In the bottom oval is the first Martin airplane, built at Santa Ana in 1909. ……. Articles Inside: … Pyramid Builder, ’44 Style ( Paul E. Tignor ) ….. Things to Come …..
