Product Description

Product Description

One of the sixteen North American B-25 Mitchell medium bombers that took part in the famous Doolittle Raid of 1942. 'The Ruptured Duck,' along with Doolittle's own aircraft is one of the best known of the aircraft that took part. Conceived as a way to boost the morale of a nation still reeling from the attack on Pearl Harbour. The Doolittle Raid consisted of the USAAF flying a number of B-25 Medium bombers off an aircraft carrier close to Japan, bombing Tokyo and then flying on to land in China. While material damage would be slight, the effect on morale back in America, and detrimentally in Japan, would be huge.

'The Ruptured Duck' got its name from scraping its rear fuselage on the runway during training. After bombing Tokyo the aircraft flew on to China where it crashed into the sea near Shangchow. All of the crew survived, though the pilot Lt. Ted Lawson lost a leg in the ditching. Scale - 1:72. 283mm Wingspan. Corgi limited edition die cast aircraft.

Nice body of an airplane but it can't stand on its three wheels (it falls on the back as the centre of gravity is at the rear part of the plane). In addition, it seemed to me that a human figure (on the lower deck of the plane) was missing in the item that I received (I saw it later on pictures of the same product in the Internet). Not recommended, Corgi has much better other products to order.
