The rugged B-25 was one of the most famous twin engine bombers developed during World War II. It was produced in larger quantities than any other American twin engine combat aircraft. The B-25 distinguished itself in the European, Mediterranean, and Pacific theaters. The B-25 achieved worldwide fame in April of 1942 when sixteen B-25’s under the command of Lt. Col. James Doolittle attacked Tokyo in a daring raid.
The medium bomber was heavily armed with as many as eight .50 caliber machine guns, and a 4000-pound bomb load. The B-25J was powered by two R-2600 Wright cyclone radial engines and had a wingspan of 67 feet and length of 52 feet.
