Rick, Thank so much for giving a little history about the B-25 WWII Bomber
Rick Willison Apr 03
Just thought I would add a little History:
This airframe was built in 1944 in Kansas City and served with the training command in WWII and numerous air force bases until 1958. Sold from Davis Monthan in 1961, it was converted to a fire bomber. A few years later is was sold to Bill and Bob Howe in south Florida who mounted spray bars onto the under wing hard points and used it to spray orange fields and mosquitos. In the early 1970′s it was donated to the SST museum in St Cloud Florida where it was parked outdoors for a decade and neglected. Tom Reilly obtained it around 1980 and did a ground up total rebuild/restoration. At that time it was given the markings of Panchito, a B-15J that served with the 396 bomb squadron, 41 bomb group, 7th Air Force on Okinawa during the summer of 1945. All aircraft of the 41 bomb group were flown to Clark Field at the end of the war and destroyed.
