B-25 "Show-Me"

This is the B-25J Mitchell “Show Me.” Show Me is part of the Commemorative Air Force Wing stationed in St. Charles Missouri. The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces in every theater of WWII, and remained in service for years after the war concluded.

This photo was captured during St. Charles Airport’s Pumpkin Drop event. On a Saturday just before Halloween, pilots signup to drop pumpkins from their planes. The plane with the closest hit wins.

This is a very informal event with an abundance of opportunity to photograph planes in the air and on the ground.
