345th Bomb Group Veterans Visit EAA
September 1, 2016 - Four veterans of the 345th Bomb Group Air Apaches visited the EAA AirVenture Museum last week for their annual reunion along with many family members of others who have passed. The museum recently installed an exhibit on the 345th Bomb Group with a number of artifacts and photos. The unit was famous for its low level attacks on the enemy in the Pacific Theater using the North American B-25 Mitchell. The group received a special dedication ceremony and autograph session followed by a tour of the museum. To top off the day they were given private access to the museum’s B-25, where they were able to sit in their old seats and allow family members to sit where their loved ones served. Many laughs and tears were had. The EAA AirVenture Museum is honored to be the caretaker of the legacy of the Air Apaches.
