N5865V — - As I promised when I posted the first photo of the CAF So. California Wings newest warbird to take to the skies again, here is a second snap of "Semper Fi," a North American B-25J Mitchell bomber (formerly 44-30988, now N5865V), captured here while on static display at the annual Truckee Airport Family Air Fest event.  This second picture, clicked from the sunlit side of the Camarillo, CA., based "Semper Fi," brightly highlights the tri-color camo paint scheme and, flying openly and freely in the strong wind, the flags of the United States and of the US Marine Corps.  The "MB-11" lettering honors Marine Bombing Squadron 611.  To the best of anyones knowledge, "Semper Fi" is the only PBJ-1J model to be flying today.  The restoration project took over two decades to complete, and it was just two months ago, in May (2016), that this superb Mitchell bomber made its first flight after being restored.

This pic brings back memories of the Doolittle Raid. To bad, the A/C which landed in the Soviet Union was not recovered. If it had, she would have been a fitting tribute to Colonel Doolittle's Raiders!!

Nice shots of this a/c as well as the CHP helo. Sounnds like it was a great event at KTRK with lots of cool aircraft and free makes it even better and easier to get more people interested in aviation.
