    Hi all I am looking for some pictures nose art pictures (close ups) of a B-25 D named "The Hot Horse" This is for someone doing some research.


    INFORMATION ABOUT IT:

    The Hot Horse crash-landed at Dobodura after the infamous bloody Rabaul raid of 2nd November 1943. The aircraft was nearly junked after this, but instead they sent it to a service squadron where it was rebuilt and transferred to the 345th Bombardment Group.
    Some of the other Mitchells lost on this infamous raid include Notre Dame de Victoire, which ditched off the island of Kiriwina, Fiji, Hellzapoppin, Tugboat Annie, and The Nip Clipper.

    B25D-10-NA The Hot Horse # 41-30274

    5th Air Force
    13th Bombardment Squadron
    3rd Bombardment Group


    Thanks in advance
