NAA B-25J Mitchell: Goin’ For Broke.

This Mitchell was assigned, in early 1944, to the 12th Bomb Group (12th Air force) in the Mediterranean. The “Finito Benito, Next Hirohito” slogan was originated because this Group was transferred from 12th AF to the 10th AF in India in March, 1944.

Hirohito must wait. The B-25J is seen here still flying over the Gulf of Naples.
