Mt. Vernon Airport to Host Historic B-25, P-51 Planes
Paid public flights will be available aboard the B-25 throughout the week, seats are $395 for a waist gunner seat, and $650 for Flight deck seating. Proceeds from the flight sales will serve to keep the planes in the air and spreading the word about the history surrounding these planes.
The B-25 Bomber was made famous by the "Dolittle Raiders" on April 18th, 1942, when 16 of the Aircraft took off from the deck of the USS Hornet to bomb Tokyo just four months after the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor during WWII.
Those interested in flights aboard the bomber can call (480) 322-5503 or email b25rcazcaf.org.
