North American B-25 Mitchell

The North American B-25 Mitchell is an American twin-engine medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation (NAA). The design was introduced in 1941 and named in honor of Major General William "Billy" Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. Used by many Allied air forces, the B-25 served in every theater of World War II. After the war ended, many remained in service, operating across four decades. Produced in numerous variants, nearly 10,000 B-25s were made. These included a few limited models, such as the United States Marine Corps' PBJ-1 patrol bomber, as well as the F-10 reconnaissance aircraft and the AT-24 trainers used by the United States Army Air Forces.

This picture, taken in 2007, shows a B-25J operated by the United States Air Force, nicknamed Russell's Raiders, at the annual International Air Picnic in Góraszka, Poland.
