The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theater of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades. The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. By the end of its production, nearly 10,000 B-25s in numerous models had been built. These included a few limited variations, such as the United States Navy's and Marine Corps' PBJ-1 patrol bomber and the United States Army Air Forces' F-10 photo reconnaissance aircraft.

Ah ... one of my favourite plane in a beautiful angle of view. I like the green and yellow livery enhanced by the good light. Excellent details of the plane. I miss the sound of those engines.

Wonderful show the manuever, a 70 years old plane, great design it was back in times.
Fine photo of the green craft against blue sky.

Great shot and the angle certainly shows it well, a shot you should be very proud of yourself for getting such a close looking angel. The props are especially the best part of the show showing the dynamic movement and how well they appear against the blue sky. Another collection of a fantastic ww2 war machine, thks for sharing, Superb capture.

This angle is so perfect that I think I've seen the same in many paintings. (Perhaps with war time shooting action and more planes in the background.)
Those old war birds look so much more interesting than modern technology.

I know this is not the first your post of the B-25 here. But I really like this photo too, after your recommendation for the Riverside Air show, I think I will try to visit another air show in my next visit. Thanks for your report from Los Angeles air show.
