There were three WWII bombers visiting Moffett Field this weekend.
You’re looking at the port side engine of a B-25J Mitchell.
The B-25′s not as famous as the B-17 and B-24, however, they were used in Jimmy Doolittle’s famous raid on Tokyo, and blasted the hell out of Imperial Japanese shipping.
I also met Jimmy Doolittle’s grandaugher, Jonna Doolittle Hoopps, who wrote a book on her grandparents.
And dammit, I should had taken a photo of her with the book.
