Model of the North American B-45 Tornado airplane. Airplane on black marble pedestal. This is an old solid aluminum model, made in the cold war era, that can be picked up from his bracket. The North American B-45 "Tornado" was a four-engine, light bomber that was produced almost immediately after the Second World War. The plane was the first all-jet bomber built for the newly established United States Air Force and turned out to be a transition plane, built in small numbers and with relatively little operational success.
