Urbana 2013 B-25 Warbird Gathering Photo Review
Warbirds at Grimes Field, Urbana, OH - November 8-9, 2013  Photos taken Friday, November 8, 2013.

Again on this November weekend B-25s staged out of Grimes Field in Urbana, OH for Doolittle Raiders memorial fly-bys at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH, just as they had done previously in 2010 and 2012.  I was lucky enough to be able to attend all three events over the years.




Five B-25s participated in 2013 for the fly-bys.  "Georgie's Gal" was one of the participants.


So was "Axis Nightmare".


"Panchito" has participated all three years and was the lead ship.


Engine start for a practice run on Friday over the Museum.


Here "Axis Nightmare", "Yankee Warrior" and "Panchito" warm up their engines.


This time of year it is spring in the southern hemisphere which means the sun is low in the sky here.  The sun is pretty much right behind the four B-25s in this photo that have all taken the runway at same time to do their run-ups.  The sound of the four Mitchells all running up their engines at the same time was impressive.  Take-offs were at 30 second intervals.


"Panchito" lifting off.


Next off was "Georgie's Girl".  The nice thing about being at Grimes on Friday was security was lax.  Actually it was non-existent and several of us wandered out to the runway to take photos.


Third in the air was "Axis Nightmare".


Last off was "Yankee Warrior".


While the other four B-25s were doing their practice run "Miss Hap" arrived.


There was a crosswind on Friday that shifted somewhat allowing the returning B-25s to land from the north.


"Yankee Warrior" taxiing back in.

Saturday the five B-25's would launch just before 2PM for the Missing Man formation they would fly for the final Doolittle Raider memorial.
