Martin B-26G-25-MA Marauder Bomber 44-68154 Crashed

"Fighin' Cock" was written-off after crash-landing on on August 12,1944. She had received flak damage while over France and had its electrical system, generators and hydraulic systems shot out. The crew nursed it back to the base (Great Dunmow,Essex, USAAF St. 485) and got the gear cranked down after the pilot ordered the enlisted men to bail out. While trying to land the plane skidded off the runway and into the control tower, killing both pilots.
