North American TB-25 Mitchell (N333RW)
At Barksdale Air Force Base.
From the Hornet to Tokyo
Indeed, the amazing Doolittle Raiders.
"...but the props aren't sync'd!" No seriously, I like this photo. Nice shot.
Still the only bomber to fly off of an aircraft. Not counting today's fighter bombers.
My dad flew a B-25 before and after hardnosed version came out to the end of the war. Well actually all the way through the war in the pacific. Army Air Force records of tonnage sunk exceed navy tonnage. Navy had major engagements but AAF was 24/7 out there hitting supply convoys and escorts along with port attacks. Low level strafing and bombing by the hardnosed version were devastating to anything in their path. For ground missions they had to put parachutes on bombs to keep them from bouncing up hitting the planes. The tail gunner was deleted due to high losses and wooden poles put in to resemble 50 cal. barrels.
