Say Hello to Betty Joe

Betty joe is a F-82B Twin Mustang that on February 27-28 1947 flew non stop from Hawaii to New York, a distance of 5,051 miles. Of the 273 F-82s built only 20 were the F-82Bs so this is one rare bird.

On a side note the F-82s were the first Air Force planes to see combat in Korea, they were stationed in Japan at the time.
