EAA’s HISTORIC B-25 BOMBER BACK ON TOUR IN 2022
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (June 13, 2022) — The Experimental Aircraft Association is bringing back the B-25 Berlin Express flight tour starting on June 17 in Champaign, Illinois.
The B-25 tour will travel throughout the United States stopping at each destination and providing flight experiences. The historically maintained aircraft allows for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly with highly trained pilots.
“Since we first flew this restored B-25 in 2019, the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve received to the airplane on tour has been extremely gratifying,” said Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety. “We are eager to have many more people experience this piece of flying history, whether that is at Oshkosh or one of the tour stops where we salute the sacrifices made by those who preserved our freedom.”
This year’s B-25 tour schedule includes:
- June 17-19: Champaign, Illinois
- June 24-26: Punta Gorda, Florida
- July 1-4: Tulsa, Oklahoma
- July 7-10: Wichita, Kansas
- July 15-17: St. Joseph, Missouri
- July 25-31: Oshkosh, Wisconsin****
- August 12-14: Sugar Grove, Illinois
- August 20-21: Springfield, Illinois
- August 26-28: Greenwood, Indiana
- September 2-5: Cincinnati, Ohio
- September 23-24: Kingsford, Michigan
The B-25 was first used fighting in World War II after the Pearl Harbor bombing in December 1941. The first B-25s became combat-ready in early 1942. The B-25 is highly remembered from when 16 bombers were loaded onto the USS Hornet Aircraft carrier with a mission to bomb Tokyo. This aircraft was also used in every branch of the US military.
