The North American B-25 Mitchell (a twin-engine bomber operated by the Allied Air Forces), known as the most versatile and heavily armed airplane, was used for high & low-level bombing and completed the raid over Tokyo in 1942.

Almost 10,000 B-25 aircraft were produced from 1939 – 1945. The B-25 was a twin-tail, mid-wing land monoplane utilizing two 1,700HP Wright Cyclone engines.
