Swell pic Mark.

Like you are almost in the Mitchell.
Another terrific aircraft, I remember these from the war years. As "kids" we used to collect pictures of various "war birds".

I rode in this aircraft in Cincinnati (LUK) a few years ago and was told that it had been in my Dad's outfit in Corsica during the war. I was a bit skeptical but just recently saw in a book about the USAAF in Corsica a photo of "Panchito" with the 310th BG.

My Step Father flew tail gunner in one of these on night missions firing rockets at Japanese shipping targets, flying with "Crams Rams". He just recently passed away a few days ago, and would have been 94 this coming November 4th. He had unlimited stories to tell about the B-25s. He had just gone on one of the Honor flights last year, and had a great time.
