Big Event for Warbird Buffs Here in Ohio!

The National Museum of the United States Air Force will honor the surviving crew members of the Doolittle Raiders who flew their B-25 Mitchell bombers off the carrier USS Hornet and dropped conventional bombs on Tokyo, Japan 68 years ago. At least 20 B-25s will be on display at the museum on Saturday, April 17th. More importantly for us pilots, though, is the possibility of seeing and hearing the B-25s up close and personal at Grimes Field, Urbana, Ohio the two days before. The planes will be staged at Grimes on the 15th and 16th and will practice formation flying out of Grimes. Some will also offer rides and most will be on static display. Full information on the Grimes activity can be found at the Champaign Aviation Museum website
