Well if you think you got the right stuff then imagine what this crew did.

On November 15, 1944 a PBJ-1H in US Marine Corps colors with strengthened airframe successfully took off and landed on the Essex class aircraft carrier Shangri-La (CV-38) with complete armament of fourteen 50 cal machine guns and one 75mm cannon plus a full bomb load. Launch was not as easy as the B-25's used in the bombing of Japan as a PBJ-1H is a lot heavier.

Any body have a side view of this with tail hook. Courious to see where it was mounted.
