Inhaltsangabe: The North American B-25 Mitchell was one of the best-known medium bombers of World War II, especially remembered for its use in the Doolittle raid on Japan in 1942 and its participation in every major theater of the war. Less known, however, is its continued role in the postwar world, both in military and civilian service. Thousands of war surplus B-25s sat on airfields in 1945, available to the highest bidder. Though most B-25s, as other warplanes, were scrapped and smelted, hundreds did enj oy a postwar career in the civil sector. The B-25 is now one of the most prolific surviving warbirds, and this book tells the story of the type in the years since the end of World War II. The B-25 has provided diverse and distinguished service in roles fr om fire-fighting to movie production. This books covers all of these roles and includes hundreds of photographs, detailed appendices, and individual aircraft histories of each of the civilian B-25s.
Klappentext: The complete story of the famous North American B-25 Mitchell in over fifty years of civil service is presented in this well-crafted volume. At least two hundred B-25s made the transition from military service to the civil market, many being pu t to use in Hollywood movies or water bombing forest fires. Dozens became company transports or test beds, while some just languished on forgotten airports. Today, pristine B-25s ply the airways, always drawing a crowd at the airshows and turning heads wi th the loud bark of twin Wright R-2600s. Here is the civil B-25 story in words and pictures, with pilot interviews and detailed appendices. Included also are individual aircraft histories for each of the B-25s that reached the civil market, a valuable res earch tool for historian and airshow enthusiast alike.
