     North American's B-25G Mitchell from the AAF TAC Center, Orlando Florida. April 17, 1944. The crew of the B-25G was five--pilot, copilot, navigator/cannoneer, upper turret gunner, and radio operator. Since there was no bombardier, the pilot fired the nose armament and released the bombs. The radio operator also doubled as the ventral turret gunner when this turret was fitted. Additional armor was fitted forward of the instrument panel, forward of the loader's station, around the 75-mm ammunition rack, and below the windshield. An external flak plate was fitted below the cockpit on the left hand side of the aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo)

     

The North American Aviation Company began production of the B-25 Mitchell bomber in 1940. The B-25 is famous for its raid on Tokyo. In April of 1942, B-25’s launched from the USS Hornet were able to attacked the Japanese capitol city, giving a large moral boost to the troops. The B-25 was utilized for the most part in the Pacific theater, though it did see action in other theaters of the war.
