The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engine medium bomber, named after United States Air Force General Billy Mitchell. The aircraft, of which almost 10,000 were produced, was used by many Allied air forces during World War II.
This Mitchell was used by the Dutch 320 Squadron of the RAF. This can be seen from the orange black-rimmed triangle on all Dutch aircraft. This example bears its original registration number FR193/L, dressed in the colors of the 320 Squadron and equipped with invasion stripes. She survived 140 missions in the Second World War and is the only virtually complete Mitchell of the copies that still served with the Dutch navy after the war.
