The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theatre of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades. The B-25 was named in honour of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. The B-25 is the only American military aircraft named after a specific person. By the end of its production, nearly 10,000 B-25s in numerous models had been built. These included a few limited variations, such as the United States Navy's and Marine Corps' PBJ-1 patrol bomber and the United States Army Air Forces' F-10 photo reconnaissance aircraft.
Bonus Program - The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four engine heavy bomber aircraft developed for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) in the 1930s but was primarily employed by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of World War II against German industrial, civilian, and military targets. B-17's had the ability to return home despite extensive battle damage that quickly took on mythic proportions with stories and photos of B-17s surviving battle damage widely circulated, increasing its iconic status.
