New B-25 Mitchell's are tied down and secured
look close, you can see the ball socket for the .30 Caliber machine gun later replaced with a .50 Caliber weapon, located in the bombardier's nose section.
At the leading edge of the wings, the black rubber deicer boots show up. Did you know it took over 8500 engineering drawings, 195,000
man hours to build the first B-25, by the end of WWII 10,000 would leave the assembly lines.
