North American B-25J Mitchell

@Mather Airport, Mather, CA

September 2012

Another warbird exhibited at the 2012 California Capital Airshow, this pristine B-25 had no shortage of forward firing guns.  John Ward’s incredible Mitchell has had a long career over its lifetime, ranging from Army Air Force bomber in WWII in the Mediterranean, to civilian fire bomber and tanker,  First flown in 1940, with over 10,000 built, this robust aircraft saw extensive combat for multiple countries and the last ones served into the 70’s.  Nikon D300, processing with iPhoto.
