Description

 

Here is Accurate Miniatures' 1/48 scale North American B-25 D Mitchell, representing the aicraft flown in 1943 by Maj. Ralph Cheli on his Medal of Honor mission.

 

 

While leading a bombing and strafing the Dagua airfield, New Guinea, Cheli's aircraft was hit several miles from the target, his plane catching fire. 

 

 

Realizing that if he left formation and climbed to safe parachuting his whole squadron would be disorganized, he continued his attack, later ditching into the sea.
