    Hi guys,

    A couple B-25s flew today at Paine Field in Everett, WA. The B-25J belongs to the Flying Heritage Collection and the B-25D belongs to the Historic Flight Foundation.

    Great pics. Shame that 'Grumpy', the B25D (Mitchell II) is back in the 'States - it's missed here in the UK. Got to look over her when it first arrived at Duxford, back in 1987/88. Last saw her the day before she departed for the USA, in 2009.

    I love the B-25. IMO, it just looks like, "I'm going to kick your a$$ and there isn't a thing you can do about it." Especially the gun ship version. There are a few planes that look like that to me. The Bf-109, Corsair, and Typhoon are a couple others.

    Great pics. Thanks for posting

    If you guys get wood from a few B-25's you should aim to be at the USAF Museum at Wright Patterson 17.04.12.....check out paragraph 7 !

    Doolittle Tokyo Raiders planning 70th anniversary reunion and historical aviation event

    Can you imagine the racket, let alone the sight of, of 25...yup, Twenty Five !!!....B-25's ?

    I dont think I can make it but am hoping some of you 'locals' might make the trip. Gotta be one h*ll of an experience if it all works out !!!

    That would be something. I love the B-25 as well.

    Here is a rare one that I hadn't seen before that showed up at Chino last year. Haven't seen it since

    That is Rod Lewis' B-25, and it is currently at Chino...awesome scheme, if anything because it's different.
