North American B-25D-5-NA Mitchell
41-30033 plus others
Fascinating night shot from the F.H. (Chris) Christensen collection
(via Craig Neumayer) of a line-
up of B-25 M<itchells at the Tulsa Modification Center probably
taken in early 1942. Several
serials are identifiable on the original print.
Nearest the camera is 41-30033.
To its left is
41-30003 whilst the third tail on the left belongs to 41-29996. The
second row contains 41-30003,
41-30058 and 41-30048.
Most of these B-25s were sent to the South Pacific
theater based in
either Australia, New
Guinea or Guadalcanal, although 29996 was a 310th BG, 380th BS
and was shot down by a Bf
109G-6 of JG 53/I and crashed into sea 18 km NE of Stromboli, Italy
on 8 September, 1943.
