Mitchell B-25
First Flight

June 23, 2007 at Ash Creek

On June 23, 2007

at the Ash Creek Field

we prepared the Mitchell B-25

for its first flight.

After synching the engines &

changing out a fuel line,

the twin Saitos 72s

were fired up.

With Pilot Mike

at the controls

the B-25 taxied out of the

pit area to the runway.

With just a light breeze,

flying conditions

were near perfect.

With a taxi down

the runway

and one turn

the B-25

made its dash

for its first flight.

It went airborne

and headed out

over the treetops.
