A North American B-25 Mitchell is taxiing to parking after landing on Duxford Airfield. The B-25 is a medium size bomber, but was also use as a strafer, which I guess means hitting ground targets from air with guns etc.
Read more about this aircraft

One of the amazing things about this aircraft was that some models (B-25G) actually had a 75 mm M4 cannon in the nose of the aircraft, which made it the biggest gun ever placed in an american bomber. The gun was loaded by the navigator.

This type of aircraft was used at the well-known Doolittle Raid on Japan, 18 April 1942 to increase american and allied morale. The aircrafts were launched from USS Hornet (carrier).

Hi Joar,
I like this shot along with your details. I love planes. I like the way you have captured this image. I think itís just has started running on runway for take-off. Thanks for sharing this image.
