B-25 Mitchell Miss Mitchell More Miss Mitchell Info

The B-25J "Miss Mitchell" served in the 310th Bomb Group, 57th Bomb Wing of the 12th Air Force in North Africa and Italy completing over 130 missions. Its legacy of no crew fatalities during all of its missions was a rare accomplishment. Prior to taking command of the 8th Air Force in Europe in 1944, the 12th Air Force was under the command of then Brigadier General Jimmy Doolittle. After a 12 year restoration by the Minnesota Wing of the Commemorative Air Force, Miss Mitchell took her first flight on April 18, 1992 ~ exactly 50 years to the day of the daring Doolittle raid.

BT-13A More Info

All pilots, whether they were destined for fighters or bombers, had to go through the pilot training process. One of the most important aircraft for developing new pilot skills was the BT-13 Valiant, sometimes known as the "Vibrator" ~ not for what it did to you, but to the windows of buildings when it flew by. A fixed gear aircraft, thousands of pilots learned critical flying skills and then continued on to the advanced trainer.

L-5 Sentinel More Info

Another of the great versatile aircraft of World War II is the fabric covered L-5 Sentinel. This unarmed aircraft was often used for observation, spotting and transporting personnel. It's slow landing speed made it capable of literally landing and taking off from almost anywhere. For that reason, it was one of the very popular aircraft and saw many additional roles, such as air ambulance and search and rescue.
