B-25 maneuverability is surprisingly nimble for a larger aircraft. It is possible to fly it more like a fighter than a bomber. Yet it is best to keep up moderate speed until after turning on to final because the aircraft responds very slowly to control inputs at lower speeds. Flying in a restored B-25 is an adventure. The sound of its twin radial engines is music to the ears, and being able to fly in the warbird is a thrill.

sent us this review of the B-25 for sale from Top Flite: "Transporting the large B-25 for sale from Top Flite to the airfield is eased because the wings, outside of the engines, can be removed. Even the smallest engines that are recommended will power the B-25 to much faster than scale speeds in level flight. Slightly less than half throttle produces the most realistic speeds.The B-25 for sale from Top Flite can't be beat.Regards, Chip Smith"
