  • North American B-25 Mitchell test firing forward armament, 1943. The B-25 would become one the most heavily armed planes in the world. Its eight forward-facing 50-caliber machine guns took part in legendary strafing runs which would pave the way for modern close air support. Some models of the B-25 had 14 forward-facing guns, making it a powerhouse when it came to strafing runs.

  • Today marked 75 years since George and the crew were killed in the tragic midair collision just 3 miles from safety. At the time they took off we were on the runway at #Dunsfold, then we stood at the spot where his B-25 fell at the time it happened, 13:35 January 7th 1944 . A man neither of us met or knew, but one among the eight lost that day who gave their young lives in the effort to create peace that both myself and Dad have had the privilege to enjoy. I also left poppies made of poplar for the crew of FL682 at their crash site. Nobody who gave their lives for freedom should ever be forgotten. #LestWeForget #180Squadron #RAF #B25 #B25Mitchell #139Wing

  • B-25 Mitchel @ National Museum of the Pacific War – Fredericksburg, TX. To boost American morale following the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt wanted to strike the Japanese homeland. Lieutenant Colonel James H. Doolittle, a pilot and aeronautical engineer, was selected to lead the attack. Doolittle chose the new twin engine B-25 Mitchel for its bomb load and range. On April 18, 1942, sixteen B-25s took off from the USS Hornet. Despite fifteen of the sixteen bombers being lost, seventy-one of the eighty pilots and crewman survived. The Doolittle Raid’s success is not measured in physical damage to its Japanese targets; the raid’s psychological impact on both Japan and the United States was extraordinary.
