"Impatient Virgin" is a well
documented crash landing in a shallow lagoon with crew members
known to have survived. There was a failed rescue attempt. The
wreck site has not been confirmed, and the crew was never found.
Unlike Europe, B-25 bombers in
the Pacific often struck targets at low level adding the
firepower from .50 Cal machine guns upon their Japanese targets.
Nose art was not uncommon, frequently using the unit symbol as
an identifier. Tropical storms, poor visibility over jungle
mountains, vast distances to the targets, also added to the
number of lost aircraft.
The left side artist graphic
represents the low level strafing and "frag" bombing tactics
used by B-25 bombers in New Guinea. It was low and fast over the
target area - often with planes in formation and dropping bombs
when the lead B-25 released. All fifty caliber machine guns were
blazing away. Some B-25 models has as many as 13 fiftys.
The right side graphic depicts
the "good" fortune of the B-25 crew that is the objective of our
search and documentary to make a forced landing in a large open
Kunai grass delta, instead of the more common, jungle covered
mountains. The Kunai grass is nearly impossible to walk through,
thick and tough, often with uneven root clumps at the base in a
few inches of water. The Kunai grass depicted here is still
short, not yet as tall as it will often grow.
