  1. My father, James “Jim” Sparks Cambron, worked on the factory-engineered B25H 75mm cannon mount at the North American Fairfax (Kansas City, Kansas) plant. he can be seen loading shells in this ground test firing film posted on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEek5IvGYKg

    Jim told the story of the time that he fired the first airborne test of the factory version over Fort Riley, Kansas. When he pulled the lanyard, the resulting firing caused an abrupt drop in speed, popped the plexiglas nose off the test airframe and momentarily pinned him against the compartment bulkhead.

    Apparently a few bugs needed to be worked out…

    My Father was a Crew Chief (Flight Engineer) on the B-25 in World War two. My brother has a collage with his wings, Sergeant stripes, good conduct medal, sharpshooter medal, and a picture of him in uniform. The flag presented to him by the Veteran group is folded in a triangle presented at his graveside.

    • Dear Sir Edmunds, thanks for your comment. If you ever want to share your father’s story with others, please feel free to contact us. Maybe we can dedicate an article to him. Thanks in advance.
