Audio isn't great in this one, we were testing my mom's new camcorder for this one, thinking wind noise reduction killed the audio due to all of the wind

I'll get the pics posted shortly.

Thank you very much for the great videos and pictures from an old, old B-25 Radio Operator-Gunner. Seems you outdid your posting from last year! :biggrin:

P.S. Couldn't help noticing the ship that did 122 Missions!

your welcome, I'm honestly not sure how many of the ones there actually served in combat, I think most flyable WW2 aircraft did not serve combat, though I'm sure there are a few exceptions.

I'll be getting more video and pics tomorrow when they arrive at the museum in the morning.

Really nice job on the photos,you can almosts hear the snarl of the Merlin in that P51.
Looking at the nose art reminds me of what the British said about the American flyers: They're over paid
over sexed
and over here.

I got some excellent stuff this morning, including a miss approach which turned into a flyover by one of the B-25s

here is a teaser

I'm still working on the video from today, but tomorrow I'll have more pics and video of the planes taking off and flying in formation.

I'll also post photo album links when I'm done tomorrow, since I didn't show every single photo lol

Boy! What great pictures, Code Red. I didn't realize there were that many B-25's left in the world--much less to have them all in one place.
