Freedom of the Skies!

Announcing “Freedom of the Skies”
North American Bomber Tour!

Freedom of the Skies Bomber Banner

The Fargo Air museum is excited to share that two of WWII’s most recognizable aircraft – the B-17 and B-25 Bombers – will be available for flights & ground tours. Courtesy of Arizona Airbase CAF, two airplanes from their “Ghost Squadron,” “Sentimental Journey” & “Maid in the Shade” will be appearing at the Fargo Air Museum for a very limited time Monday June 22nd – Sunday June 28th, 2015.

Ground tours – museum admission included – are $15 for individuals, and $30 for families (2 adults, plus children under 17). Flights start at just $395.00 with limited seating available; reservations strongly encouraged. Please contact Courtney at the Fargo Air Museum – 701-293-8043 to make reservations for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Join us at the Fargo Air Museum to experience these two incredibly rare pieces of Aviation & WWII history live & in person – “Sentimental Journey” & “Maid in the Shade.”

“Sentimental Journey,” is one of the last flying WWII B-17 bombers in existence. Though nearly 13,000 were originally built, less than ten remain in flying condition and very few fly regularly. Also of particular interest, the nose art of the Sentimental Journey features the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II era, Betty Grable. This particular aircraft is named after the song popularized by Doris Day in 1945.

The B-25 Mitchell bomber “Maid In The Shade” has taken twenty-eight years to painstakingly restore to full military specification. The B-25 Mitchell was originally made famous by the Doolittle’s Raiders over the Pacific Theater in WWII. On April 18, 1942, sixteen B-25 crews launched an air assault on Japan from an aircraft carrier deep in the Pacific, fully understanding that they did not have the fuel to return. While the mission was successful, all the aircraft involved in the mission were lost. “Maid in the Shade” is flown in honor of all the Doolittle Raiders.

“Sentimental Journey” and “Maid in the Shade” are operated by the Arizona Airbase of the Commemorative Air Force, located at Falcon Field in Mesa, Arizona. The CAF’s fleet of historic aircraft – known as the Ghost Squadron – recreate, remind and reinforce lessons from the defining moments in our American military aviation history.

The CAF is a flying museum staffed by volunteers organized in 1978, their mission is to restore historically important aircraft to educate the public about the significant contributions made by men and women in the defense of our nation, and to remind our veterans of all conflicts that their sacrifices are not forgotten.
