EAA’s B-25H “Berlin Express” is the historic B-25 Mitchell which captured the world’s attention in April 1942 when 16 launched from the USS Hornet for the Doolittle Raid. It was a versatile platform for all the Allied Forces around the globe and developed into America’s first “gunship” with multiple .50 caliber machine guns and even a 75mm M4 cannon in the nose. EAA’s “Berlin Express” had a long career as a private aircraft before appearing in two roles in the original 1970 movie “Catch 22”. It was the “Berlin Express” bomber in its current camouflage paint scheme and was also Orson Welles’s tan VIP Aircraft with white sidewall tires from which he as Wing Commander Brigadier General Dreedle exits the left rear airstair door. Completely hand drawn by Kimberleigh and then screen printed in 14 colors on a Military Green t-shirt, this design beautifully captures many of these B-25 details as it celebrates and honors the “Mitchell” and those who built, maintained and flew them, especially EAA’s magnificent “Berlin Express” and those who restored her.
