B-25 Mitchell

Yesterday, we attended an Air-Show and got to see a B25, unfortunately we did not get an inside tour, but watching it take off was well worth our Saturday morning, and that was free. I touched up some of these photos to give a gritty look. I always feel like I am cheating when I use photoshop to enhance the image. But everyone does it, right?

Here is info on the plane, taken from the Yankee Air Museum website. The museum is located at the Willow Run Airport in Belleville. It is not open to public due to Airport Authority Restrictions. They are taking donations for building an offsite historical museum.

The North American B-25 “Mitchell” bombers, named after Gen. “Billy” Mitchell, were the most effective medium bombers of World War II, probably best remembered for the carrier-launched Doolittle Raid against Japan in April of 1942. The Yankee Warrior is the only flying B-25D-35 and one of very few aircraft with documented combat history. For a once in a lifetime experience take a flight on this combat veteran.
