North American B-25 J Mitchell 12th AF 'Finito Benito'

History: 

 

'Finito Benito Next Hirohito' was a B-25J-25-NA assigned to the 12th Bomb Group in early 1944. The Group was transferred from the 12th Air Force in the Mediterranean to the 10th Air Force in India in March, 1944. The name reflects the change in Theater assignment. It was painted in red on the upper surfaces of the wings, as opposed to the usual placement on the nose of the airplane.
