Squadron 490th BS
Wed Sep 21, 2011 10:03 pm

This is "Buster" the newest addition to the Flying Heritage Collection in Everett, WA. It belongs to the 490th BS, the "Burma Bridge Busters." An unmarked version is included as well.

This is a historical skin based on a B-25J Mitchell of the 490th Bombardment Squadron which served in Burma. This aircraft, 810, is the newest addition to Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection in Everett, Washington. As it belongs to the "Burma Bridge Busters," this aircraft is affectionately known as "Buster." It is said to be the most accurately restored B-25 in the world, featuring all-original parts from the manual for the Norden bomb sight to the Astro-Compass and Gun-camera mounted in the cockpit. The folks at AeroTrader did a fantastic job on this bird, and she looks even better in the air! Why did they select tail number 810? Because Arnold Spielberg (father to producer/director Steven Spielberg) was a radio operator for the squadron and managed to go on a few sorties in this very aircraft!

The paint scheme depicted on the FHC’s B-25J is that of “number 810” of the 490th Bomb Squadron. The plane flew 115 missions before being shot down on its 116th. FHC staffers decided to make the plane appear the way it did the day it was lost. As a result, the “scoreboard” on the side of the cockpit wears 115 bombs—one for each mission completed on the day it never came home.
