B25 Matted Print
The North American B-25 Mitchell was classified as a twin engine medium bomber and named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation and was first flown in the late 1930’s. The B-25 served admirably in all theaters of operation throughout WWII but the majority of B-25’s flew in the Pacific Theater. A safe and forgiving aircraft to fly, the Mitchell was well liked by their crews for its ruggedness and dependability. The B-25 was produced in large numbers and performed various types of missions, everything from medium altitude precision bombing to low-level strafing attacks. Also, it was flown by many allied Air Forces throughout the war and saw service across four decades. The B-25 first gained fame on April 18, 1942, led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle, when it took off from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet and bombed mainland Japan. This B-25J ‘Lady Lil’ was assigned to the 345th Bomb Group ‘Air Apaches’, 498th Bomb Squadron ‘Falcons’ on the Philippines Islands 1944.
