Rel, it was a B-26 on Display, the display plaque said 'B-27'.

I wish I had taken photos...

it confused me, because of the B*-*7 (it had several letter in it...) it was Black, and they fly it, it had a very oily engine on one side.. Oh well, whatever, it is whatever it is. I think Gos went there the following year and said there were no aircraft left there....
which confuses me, because they had a lot of old and middle age aircraft...

F-15, Mig 17's, and many more including the first gyro copter.

Looking at the web site, it looks like they have an A-26 Invader (like the one used in the movie Always), although it wasn’t painted black.

Still, always fun to check out these old warbirds :).

Looks in the specifications sheet you are both right. The B-26 was also designated "B-26; B-27, B-33, AT-23, JM"

I was quite disappointed the last time I went to the Tillamook museum, as the owner of the majority of the warbirds packed up and moved the loot to a museum in eastern Oregon. There are only a couple warbirds left in Tillamook now.

Bummer!
