A B-25 Mitchell medium bomber (Sarinah) was seen today at RAF Woodvale.
The RAF received almost 900 Mitchells, using them to replace Douglas Bostons, Lockheed Venturas and Vickers Wellington bombers. The Mitchell entered active RAF service on 22 January 1943.
Initially, it was used to bomb targets in occupied Europe. Following the Normandy invasion, the RAF and France used Mitchells in support of the Allies in Europe.
