B-25 Mitchell, "Maid in the Shade"

The B-25 was developed by North American Aviation and used mainly as a low altitude strafe and skip bomber. Nearly 10,000 B-25s were produced and “Maid in the Shade” is one of 34 still flying today.

This B-25 has a local historical connection; it still uses the Goodyear brake system that was manufactured right here in Akron during WWII. Wonder how many brake pads have been used over the last 80 years?
