Greetings, I am looking for a photograph of the B-25 airplane that used to be in a park in Odessa, Texas. The city scrapped the airplane in the very late 70ís or early 80ís and I would like to learn who hauled the B-25 away, but the photo would be wonderful. I hope someone there in Odessa remembers the old airplane and knows someone that has a picture of it.
Kind Regards.

B25J, s/n 4430779. I have picture of myself in diapers taken early 1960's standing in aircraft. Graduated PHS in 1978. High school yearbook shows school pepettes along top of wings. Went into Navy in '79, B25 was gone in '85 when I returned to Odessa. Looking for info on this aircraft. Also A26 that was in Slater park, Odessa.

Hello. I used to live several blocks away from the B25 in Odessa back in the 70s and played in it. Did you ever get any photo of it?

I witnessed the plane being taken apart and hauled away on trucks about 1976-77. I moved from odessa in 1978 so I'm pretty sure on that date. What a shame if it was scrapped and not restored.

What is a shame is that today if it were announced it were to be scrapped, many people would donte to help have it restored. I used to play in thing at Prairie Pete park in the 70's. I moved to Austin in 1978, then high school and college there, moved with my wife to Albuquerque in 2008.
