B-25 Miss Mitchell Fundraising Campaign

We are looking to raise funds to help offset the cost of flying and expenses as we have been bit hard this year with COVID-19. We had planned to attend many airshows over the past year including Arsenal of Democracy and hope to recover some of our costs for not being to do our shows.

The B-25 placed itself in World War II history books on April 18, 1942 when 16 of the medium range bombers launched from the deck of an aircraft carrier in the Pacific Ocean and bombed mainland Japan. Led by Lt. Col. James "Jimmy" Doolittle, America had begun to turn the tables on the Japanese.

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 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.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, The Commemorative Air Force depends on contributions of its members, private individuals, and businesses to keep us flying! Maintaining vintage aircraft that haven't been produced since World War II is a very costly proposition. Most parts (if even still available) are rare, and cost a premium. If a needed part is not available it must be custom manufactured, usually at a great expense.
