PBJ Presentation Aug 6, 2022
Thank you all who came out to learn about our bomber and support the Commemorative Air Force!
PBJ Mitchell Presentation August 6,
The Tree Top Terror! That’s what Japanese ground forces called Marine
Corps PBJ and Army Air Force B-25 medium bombers as they rampaged at
very low altitudes across the Southwest Pacific from 1943 onward. Given
the leeway by accommodating leadership to test and evaluate different
tactics and armament configurations in the field, that’s just what they
did. Come experience living history as CAF SoCal conducts a presentation
on the varying tactics and armament used by PBJ units as they constantly
adjusted to operational needs and enemy counter-tactics. We’ll also open
our magnificent PBJ-1J, which took 23 years to restore to flying condition,
so you can tour the inside of the aircraft.
