So I mastered the art of bombing in my trusty B-25...quite happy with that fact. Not as hard as some stuff makes it out to be. Got shot up pretty bad though....
Few days later I was shown a picture of my bomber that was taken when I was coming in for the landing.

Strongest radio wire I've ever seen....Even when I was parked, it continued to hover....

I am more interested in how you maintained controlled flight with no vertical stabilizers or rudders and a horizontal stabilizer on only one side of the aircraft. You really should have spinned into the ground with that crate.

I was thinking the same thing. I elevator, yet I had no problem adjusting my pitch. On the approach here, I even had rudder control......

Its most commonly heard as a high pitched incessant whine, however it can also resemble low grumbling sounds of verying intensity, and very rarely soft monotones similar to college professors speaking.
