B-25J “Killer B” represents the sights and sounds of a bygone era. The world is fortunate that the individuals of the Valiant Air Command in Titusville, Florida, preserve the meticulous process of pulling props through, starting smokey engines and making those radials rumble the area. With nearly 10,000 B-25 aircraft produced, these events used to be commonplace, but now only a handful of these aircraft continue to fly. These few birds carry the spirit of those who fought in WWII, allowing future generations to experience the era first hand.


Even before I had a bit of a nasty crash last December in my motorised bicycle when I cracked my Bell bicycle helmet, I was considering buying a actual motorcycle helmet, and since two months ago local gubmint made it mandatory anyways, I went looking and couldn’t help but fall in love with this 5 Series Wingman design by O’Neal. Here’s hoping it last until I can buy a motorcycle.
