The B-25 was built in greater numbers than any other U.S. twin-engine bomber.  The only airplane in the USAAF inventory capable of performing the carrier-launched bombing mission against Japan, it became famous overnight when Lt Col James Doolittle's Raiders hit Tokyo on April 18, 1942.

The B-25 was named in honor of Brig Gen Billy Mitchell who had been a vigorous proponent of airpower in the 1920's.
