Photo of the Week
October 3, 2010
Two more great and rare photos taken at Albrook Field with a group of Martin B-10 Bombers with a mishap photo shown below.
B-10 was the first "modern-day" all-metal monoplane bomber to
be produced in quantity. It featured such innovations as
internal bomb storage, retractable landing gear, a rotating gun turret,
and enclosed cockpits. It was 50% faster than its contemporary biplane
bombers and as fast as most of the fighters. When the Air Corps ordered
121 B-10s in the 1933-1936 period, it was the largest procurement of
bomber aircraft since WW I.
