B25-B Mitchell Doolittle's Raiders A/C No. 40-2278 for The B24 Guy's OH ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
B25-B Mitchell Doolittle's Raiders A/C No. 40-2278, April 18, 1942. Painted over The B24 Guy's B25 Mitchell Overhaul Model. This was mission plane #12. Pilot: Lt. William M. Bower, Co-Pilot: Lt. Thadd H. Blanton, Navigator: Lt. William R. Pound, Bombardier: T/Sgt. Waldo J. Bither, Flight Engineer/Gunner: S/Sgt. Omer A Duquette. The bomb group attacked targets in the Tokyo area. The North American B-25B was not designed or intended for aircraft carrier use, but there they were, sixteen highly modified bombers sitting on the deck of the USS Hornet (CV-8). They were modified to carry bombs to Tokyo. The B-25s are launched from their maximum range, and flew over Tokyo, bombing several installations. The bombs did little damage, but managed to damage the Japanese carrier Ryuho while it is in drydock. Many of the planes then head to wherever they can make it, since the fuel will be empty before they reach a friendly airbase. All of the B-25 bombers are forced to bail out or crash land except one. Eleven crews are forced to bail out over China, 3 crash land, and the last landed safely at Vladivostok. The crew that landed in Russia was interned, along with the plane, for a while. The crews were all volunteer, and had no carrier experience, yet all sixteen of the bombers were successful on take-off. Although little physical damage was inflicted on Japan, that day, the Japanese populace was demoralized, as suddenly, the war was brought to their homeland. Texture, and Damage Files included. Note the three windows in both port and starboard bulkheads. Enjoy!
