The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engine medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation.  Allied air forces flew it in every theater of World war II, and it was used my many other air forces after the war, seeing service across four decades.

     Built in 1944 by North American, our B-25J served with the USAAF for 13 years. It was used as a trainer, transport and personnel transport. In 1957 it was transferred to the famous "airplane boneyard" at Davis-Monthan AFB where it was stored until ~1959 when it was bought by a private company and fought fires in Canada and the USA. It continued to be used as an airtanker until the late 1980's when it was restored to its wartime specifications.

     In 2008 the Champaign Aviation Museum acquired the aircraft and has been flying and meticulously maintaining it ever since. We regularly fly the B-25 to airshows, events, warbird ride experiences, and for flyovers.
