North American B-25B “Mitchell”

The first bombing run over Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor was done with this bomber the B-25B. While the run did little damage it did send a message to the Emperor of Japan. Also it was the only medium bomber to be launched from an Aircraft Carrier. The display is pretty cool too.

  1. Ed, nice capture. I just finished reading Target Tokyo by James M. Scott. It was nice to read the details of the Doolittle led flights. In the last picture it looks as if Halsey is talking to Doolittle. Doolittle was short. Thanks for sharing.
