We present two different time periods in the history of Douglas A-26C 44-34313. The cover shows the Invader during September 2018 after a lengthy restoration by Steve Penning and Phil Gattuso as they fly the attack bomber near Santa Rosa, California. The image on this page illustrates the plane when it was owned by David Lane who was flying it over Pyramid Lake, Nevada, on 16 September 2002. Photography by Michael O’Leary
