B25 on bombing run?

Is this B25 on a bombing run? Interestingly, the answer is yes. This is from an event in St. Charles, Missouri called a Pumpkin Drop where a target is setup and pumpkins are dropped on it all day. The plane with the closest hit, wins. Fortunately,  the airport where this event is held houses a wing of the Confederate Air Force which houses this B25 and a few other vintage military aircraft.

On the day of this event you could attend for free, walk around the planes and out near the runways. It was a great opportunity for photographers!
