The B-25 Mitchell Bomber is coming!
Named for General Billy Mitchell (the father of the U.S. Air Force), the B-25 entered service on the first day of the war and served until well after. Around 10,000 were built in several configurations. Early on, their strafing power and low-level bombing capabilities had the Mitchells virtually encrusted with as many as 18 machine guns. The B-25J, the last production model of the bomber, was conventionally equipped with a transparent nose.This aircraft is privately owned.
