Just to let you know, but on the main page where there are two photo's shown. One that is a side view is a Mitchell, but the top view of the other aircraft is a B24 Liberator. 4 engines VS 2 engines, and high wing VS mid wing.

Does anyone know if the Doolittle Raiders painted their B-25s grey underneath, or were they all green? What about sources?

I am looking for information, photos, maps, etc. on the Montbook Army Airfield.
It was located approx, 2 miles SW of Williston, FL at what is now designated as
Williston Municipal Airport X60.
I am wishing to compile a small history reference book about this airport.
Any information you could provide, and/or references would be greatly apreciated.
Thank You.
