B-25 Mitchell Bomber

Hamilton, On - Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum
The B-25 Mitchell was built by North American Aviation Company in California. Various models were flown in every theatre of war and on missions ranging from bombing, to low-level tank busting and anti-shipping attacks. In the Battle of the Bismarck Sea (Pacific theatre), modified Mitchells with ten forward-firing guns achieved great success against Japanese naval forces. Another historic event was the Doolittle Raid, the Americans' first bombing operation against Japan, which was launched at long-range from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS 'Hornet.'

The RAF used Mitchells throughout the European and North African campaigns, where many of these aircraft were flown by Canadian crews. After the war, the RCAF operated Mitchells in Canada as navigational trainers until 1963.

The Museum's Mitchell 3 is a B-25 Model J that was manufactured for the post-war. It has been restored to the configuration of an aircraft from 98 Squadron RAF and is also dedicated to the Canadian members of that squadron and all the members of CWH who were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Silves, Algarve. The small town seems suspended in time, especially during its annual medieval festival. Food, drink, babes & some oddball items like Iron Sheik sandals & handcrafted leather goods.

China + GDP Manipulation = Ghost Cities

Currency & economic manipulation has lead to 64,000,000 unoccupied residential units in China. In order to maintain its GDP growth, the central Chinese government continues to push its regional & municipal governments to build infrastructure...even when there's no one there to use it.
