The engine/prop turns the opposite direction than the others, left instead of right.

YUP!

Some Bf-109 versions also had a counter clockwise rotating prop, but those engines don't exist anymore.

Near Ft Worth there is a Bf-109 (it did fly) which also had a counter clockwise prop, but those engines could not be found. They replaced the engine with a clockwise one, but this one was extremely hard to fly as the tail has a certain angle to oppose the effect of a counter clockwise rotating engine.  Get it?

It's not in this video, but some very old planes had rotating engines !

From the pilots perspective:

Spoiler

 

Not sure about the twin engine, as they only started one engine.

I don't think the B-25 had counter roating engines but the P-38 did.

Most multi engine aircraft have counter rotating propellers to balance torque & asymmetric blade effect(p-factor) that would otherwise cause unwanted yaw of the aircraft.

As BrushWolf stated the B-25 did not have counter rotating propellers.

Maybe these days, but back then, seems not many did other than the P-38. http://ww2f.com/threads/counter-rotating-props.12260/

It takes No Skill to have your prop turn counter-clockwise.

It depends on your understanding of the definition of life.  Both work... Wonder if it will be an ice breathing dragon.

After reading this thread, we would be all better off if they boarded this place up so we could go enjoy a thrilling game of shuffleboard or badminton.

We are expecting to get the F-82 in the game. It did have contra-rotating props. This really matters for forward-firing ordnance. A couple of guys I flew with in the F-100 had been operational in the F-82 and said it was great-hitting bird. I had one flight, flying the B-25, which had props turning same direction, and was not bothered by yaw, We did not fire any ordnance. The OV-10 was a close-coupled bird which had contra-rotating props. It had great power so this was quite significant. I had a handful of missions in it over Laos for forward air control orientation, firing marking rockets. Rockets much align into the wind in the first few feet so yaw is a serious problem when accuracy matters. All the pilots from the OV-10, with whom I had contact, really liked it.
