B-25 Mitchell


This is the North American B-25 Mitchell. Made famous by the Doolittle Tokyo Raid, the Mitchell is the only aircraft made before or since that was named for an individual. William "Billy" Mitchell was a very vocal advocate for air power. He was also an innovator of air tactics. Pacific Princess was flown for many years as an air tanker before going into the movie industry in 1968. This is another of the "Catch-22" aircraft that has also been featured in other movies, including the movie Pearl Harbor, where it flew off the carrier USS Constellation as "Whirling Dervish".
