After World War II the USAAF had large numbers of B-25s, some were sold as scrap, others transferred to friendly foreign armed forces, where many continued to serve into the 1960s. The USAAF, and later the USAF continued to use the B-25 many were stripped of armament and used as Trainers,Squadron Hacks,Utility Duties,Target Tugs,VIP Transports and used to test new Radar and Electronic Equipment. Aircraft were passed on to the Air National Guard, and served until the last B-25s were retired in 1959. One of the last foreign users was Indonesia that Country retired its bombers in the early 1960s. CIVILIAN LIFE: Surplus B-25s were bought by Aerial Survey Companies, used as Fire Bombers and modified into Executive Transport, used in Movie Work Other aircraft have been restored and are working the air show circuit as Warbirds.
