EAA's Historic B-25 Bomber Back On Tour In 2022
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (June 13, 2022)
EAA is bringing back the B-25 Berlin Express air tour starting on June 17 in Champaign, Illinois. The B-25 tour will travel throughout the United States providing flight experiences at multiple destinations. The fully restored 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.”

- June 17 - 19: Champaign, Illinois
- June 24 - 26: Punta Gorda, Florida
- July 1 - 4: Tulsa, Oklahoma

The B-25 first saw combat in World War II after the Pearl Harbor bombing in December 1941, with the examples of the type becoming combat-ready in early 1942. The B-25 is best remembered for the famed Doolittle Raid, when 16 of the medium bombers were loaded onto the USS Hornet aircraft carrier and used on the first strike against the Japanese homeland. The B-25 was used by all major branches of the U.S. armed forces during WWII.
