The Flying Prostitute, The Martin B-26 Bomber

Posted by:

An introduction to a line of stories about the world’s oldest profession and its relationship with military men every where.

The Martin B-26 was a 2-engine medium bomber, serving from 1942 to 1945. It llargely supported ground operations in the Pacific and Mediterranean theaters of combat.

Because of its huge fuselage and, by comparison, smaller wings, it was affectionately referred to by ground troops in North Africa, Sicily and Italy as “the flying prostitute”.

Why? Wait for it.

No Visible Means of Support.
