Impressive. Is this also known as the Liberator?
Alan Hume
No John, the Consolidated B-24 Liberator was a much larger 4-engined heavy bomber (admittedly of similar external design as the B-25) and the most-produced heavy bomber of WWII. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consolidated_B-24_Liberator.

@Alan, thank you for sharing the information about the B-24. It amazes me that with over 19,000 built, only 2 remain airworthy. I was lucky enough to see Witchcraft a few years back. They let us stand just yards away as it started up, then we watched it take off and do a low pass. Nothing quite like hearing 4 radial engines throttle up!

If you thought standing next to a Liberator was amazing, quite a number of years ago my son & I were able to take a ride on the Colling's Foundation B-24, then know as the "All American." Now that was amazing.

I flew on the Witchcraft in Florida last year, a great experience, the Collins foundation charges $450 for a 30 min flight, but it is worth every penny. I have also flown on the B-25 and B-17.

Thank you all. I ask because during the war, there was a US airfield down the road from me in Lancashire a place called Warton. My father told me that a plane called the Liberatot crashed on the village school killing 40 children and staff. (And crew of 3) I remember the likeness in the picture above.
It was August 44. To this day US airmen attend the memorial service at the mass grave.
The airfield is now part of British Aerospace.

Did the Navy have a similar version of this aircraft ?

@Harry, the Navy flew the PBJ-1, which was their variant of the B-25. An interesting fact: The USAAF flew B-25s from Navy aircraft carriers during the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, in 1942.

My wife (whose father flew the B0-24 during the war), my oldest daughter and I flew the "Witchcraft" when it was here in JAX about a month ago. The 30 minute ride turned into a 2 1/2 hour flight as we sprung a hydraulic leak when retracting the gear on take-off. The landing involved a one-time-on-the-brakes situation (it also steers with the brakes). Fortunately we had a 12,000' runway at the former Navy Cecil Field, and, after on unusually smooth landing we rolled and long way and then we stropped and they chocked the wheels and began blotting up all the hydraulic fluid that was leaking from everywhere on the plane. A great experience. Was I worried? No! The two pilots had 47,000 hours between them!
