This year is the Bicentennial Year for Miamitown Ohio. Miamitown has held a special Service on Memorial Day for 127 years consecutive. We want to make it a special event this year with a flyover performed by a restored WW2 B-25 Bomber from the Tri State Warbird Museum. We need to just cover the cost of fuel for this Magnificent Historic Airplane. We need your help to make this happen.
** B-25 Mitchell is a twin-engined, medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation in the United States and used during World War II. When production of the plane ended, approximately 10,000 had been built, including the PBJ-1 Navy Patrol Bomber and an F-10 reconnaissance version. While the B-25 was meant originally to bomb from medium altitudes in level flight, it was used frequently in the Pacific Theatre in treetop-level missions against Japanese airfields and for operations such as strafing and skip-bombing against enemy Japanese shipping. The B-25 is most famous as the bomber used in the 1942 Doolittle Raid, where the raiders took off from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet, and bombed mainland Japan.
The B-25 is powered by two Wright R-2600 Cyclone engines, each delivering up to 1,700 hp. The bomber had a top speed of 275 mph, a combat range of 1,350 miles, and ceiling of 25,000 feet.
