B-25 Mitchell "Tondelayo"


On October 18, 1943 took off from Dobodura on a bombing mission over Rabaul without fighter escort. Over the target, this B-25 plus along with B-25D "Sorry Satchul" 41-30056 and B-25D "SNAFU" 41-30054 attacked a 6,000 ton ship off Vunapope. One of its engines was shot out, and the bomber engaged in a seventy-five minute aerial battle with a reported fifty Japanese fighters as it returned to base. Both of the wing men in the flight were shot down. During the escape, turret gunner Murphy was credited with five victories, plus four others credited that crashed into the sea, attempting to attack the bomber skimming the surface of the ocean, and misjudging their attacks. It successfully returned to base with heavy damage. The 500th BS received a distinguished unit citation for this mission, and this was the most famous mission for "Tondelayo"
