Photo Comment

After the B-25 Mitchell Doolittle raid on Tokyo in 1942 the US Navy decided it should have some B-25s of it's own that were subsequently designated PBJs. This aircraft, stored in the storage compound of the National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola, is 44-29035 but painted in the markings of a PBJ-1D assigned to VMB-423 that crashed on the island of Vanuatu on 22 April 1944.
