This is a Mitchell B-25 bomber. This type of plane was used by Jimmy Doolittle to bomb the city of Tokyo. He reconfigured the plane to enable it to take off from the air craft carrier Hornet. The raid is depicted in the movie " 30
Seconds Over Tokyo." The bombing raid caught the Japanese totally off guard. They thought they had destroyed our carriers in Pearl Harbor.
