The North American B-25J Mitchell was a five-seat medium bomber. Named after a champion of US Air Power, William "Billy" Mitchell, the first B-25 took flight in summer 1940. There were nearly a dozen variants of the aircraft, but the B-25J was the most common (4,390 B-25Js were actually produced). The Mitchell could reach a maximum speed of 227mph, had a maximum take-off weight of 35,000 pounds, and was armed with twelve 12.7mm machine-guns.

North American B-25J Mitchell

Originally designed as an attack bomber for export to France and the UK, the B-25 Mitchell was first flown on August 19, 1940. Rejected by the countries it was designed for in favor of the new Douglas DB-7, the B-25 later entered service with the Army Air Corps as a medium bomber. Early in its service career, the B-25 became famous for its role in the Doolittle Raid. Nearly 10,000 B-25s were built by North American Aviation, and the aircraft's service spanned four decades. Named for aviation pioneer Billy Mitchell, the B-25 is the only US military aircraft to bear the name of an individual person.
