Hello! Here are 5x B-25J-1NA from 501st BS, 345th BG "Air Apaches".

Tacloban Airfield, Leyte Island, Philippines, from November 1944 to January 1945.

- Plane named "Lazy Daisy Mae" #43-36012 - 2nd Lt. Roman Ohnemus had the honor of piloting "LAZY DAISY MAE" during the first landing of a B-25 in the Philippines after MacArthur's successful return.
On October 28th, 1944, 2nd Lts Ohnemus and Jay Moore flew 345th Group HQ staff members to Tacloban on Leyte shortly after the capture of the airstrip there.
The "Lazy Daisy Mae" was to disappear mysteriously from a 345th Group formation over Sibuyan Island, while on a mission to support the invasion of Luzon on 9 January, 1945.
It was never heard from again.

There were no survivors.

The nose-art of B-25J"LAZY DAISY MAE" and "CACTUS KITTEN" were completed by 501st B.S. Intelligence S/Sgt George M. Blackwell.
The lettering was done by Cpl. Joseph Merenda.

- Plane named "Reina del Pacifico" #43-36020
