North American B-25 (Restored) Mitchell Navy Bomber Maiden Flight
Camarillo Air Field LIVE on Periscope (thanks to the Periscoper)
These are screenshots from the tarmac:
The B-25 Mitchell is an American twin-engine, medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. Named in honor of Major General William “Billy” Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation, they served in every theater of World War II and after the war remained in service for four decades. There are more than one hundred surviving North American B-25 Mitchells scattered around the world, mainly in the United States. Most of them are on static display in museums, but about 45 are still airworthy.
Recently restored, according to the scope, this was the maiden flight and first time back in the air for this veteran aircraft. The plane flew three fly-bys, so here are a few good screenshots of the plane in the air:
And here are a few historical shots from WWII of other B-25s (not my pics, obviously):
