Have you ever wanted to see a B-25 Mitchell or a B-17 Flying Fortress…how about fly in one? Starting at 11am on July 5, 2022, you will get the opportunity to have an experience of a lifetime at the Flying Legends Victory Tour.
Flying in these airplanes, it’s a visceral experience. They’re loud, there is wind blowing through the airplane while you’re flying, there are no comfortable seats … It’s a different type of experience. ~Mike Mueller, Director of the Commemorative Air Force
The B-17 Bomber is a heavy Bomber Bristling with armament. They earned a deadly reputation and were legendary for their ability to return home after taking brutal poundings. The B-25 was developed by North American Aviation and used mainly as a low altitude strafe and skip bomber. Nearly 10,000 B-25s were produced and “Maid in the Shade” is one of 34 still flying today.
