B-25 "patches"
Posted by Centerdeck2 on Friday, July 13, 2012 8:11 PM

Was thumbing through wikipedia and the article on the b-25 mentioned an aircraft from the 321st AEG that i cannot find any other information on.  "patches" evidently was impervious to death, and i would love to see some pictures, if any exist.  Anyone know of any leads?

Doesn't look like there's much info out there.

This is all I could find....

 

B-25 "Patches"

I found one reference to Patches. In the book B-25 Mitchell The Magnificent Medium, there is a pic showing most of one of the vertcal tails blown off. The caption reads; "Ground Crewman speculate on the damage inflicted by an 88mm anti-aicraft round on Lt. Col. Malcom Baily's PATCHES. The 12 BG B-25 flew in this condition for more than two hours after being hit over Yugoslavia." I thought I had seen another reference to Patches in another book, but I have yet to track it down.
