WW2 B-25 USAAF Mitchell Medium bomber
The The United States Army Air Corps ordered the production of the B-25 Mitchell Medium Bomber in August 1939. The first prototype flew on 19th August 1940 followed by large scale production just in time for when America entered World War Two. Sixteen B25 Mitchells were put onto the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier and used to bomb Tokyo in April 1942. Though this raid was of little military value the psychological value was immense. The USAAF based their B-25 Mitchells in the Mediterranean with the 12th United States Army Air Force. The USAAF did not operationally base them in Britain but the British RAF, Dutch and Russian Airforces received large numbers of B25 Mitchells. For the Royal Air Force Bomber Command this was one of the first operational aircraft that had a nose wheel. It improved forward vision on the ground and improved ground handling. This Aircraft has appeared in several films including 'Catch 22' and 'Hanover Street'
