Named for air power advocate Gen Billy Mitchell, the North American B-25 medium bomber entered service in 1941. The first aircraft to sink a Japanese submarine , the B-25 recorded another first when 16 Mitchells took off from the carrier Hornet on 18 April 1942 to bomb Tokyo and other Japanese cities. Piloting the 16th Mitchell during the Doolittle Raid was Lt William Farrow, a graduate of Goodfellow's first class.

Goodfellow's Mitchell (S/N 44-28875) entered service in 1944 and was modified to a trainer model (TB-25) the following year. Prior to its retirement in 1959 the Mitchell saw service at Roswell, Carswell, Kelly and Dyess Air Force Bases. In 1983 GAFB acquired the Mitchell and placed it at the old South Gate on Scherz Blvd. The base moved the Mitchell to the present location in 1991, to stand in tribute to the 2,434 pilots who trained on the TB-25 at Goodfellow from 1954 to 1958.
