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.
