In the Pacific, it flew just feet off the ground at more than 200 miles per hour, strafing and skip-bombing Japanese ships and fixed targets. In Europe, it roared at 12,000 feet through intense German anti-aircraft fire, dropping 500-pound bombs on rail lines and bridges.
The B-25 bomber is widely regarded as the most versatile plane of WWII. In this hour, host Steve Thomas uncovers the story of the crucial roles the B-25 played during the war. He watches close up as several B-25s are being restored today, meets six veterans who flew them in intense combat--including during the legendary Doolittle Raid--and experiences the thrill of flying in one of the greatest warplanes ever built.
