Event Details

Come join us for our next presentation – PBJ Mitchell Presentation August 6, 2022 – $10 donation suggested
The Tree Top Terror! That’s what Japanese ground forces called Marine Corps PBJ and Army Air Force B-25 medium bombers as they rampaged at very low altitudes across the Southwest Pacific from 1943 onward. Given the leeway by accommodating leadership to test and evaluate different tactics and armament configurations in the field, that’s just what they did. Come experience living history as CAF SoCal conducts a presentation on the varying tactics and armament used by PBJ units as they constantly adjusted to operational needs and enemy counter-tactics. We’ll also open our magnificent PBJ-1J, which took 23 years to restore to flying condition, so you can tour the inside of the aircraft
