The North American B-25 Mitchell is a medium bomber from the Second World War. This powerful twin engined and twin tailed aircraft was used by every branch of the United States military. It is the only US military aircraft to ever be named after an individual, air power advocate General Billy Mitchell.

In March of 1939 the United States Army Air Corps put out the call to aircraft companies for a medium bomber that was able to carry a bomb load of 2,400 pounds for 1,200 miles at a speed of 300 mph. North American delivered a prototype named the NA-62. The Army Air Corps was impressed with the aircraft’s performance and immediately ordered the aircraft, now designated B-25.

The first B-25’s became combat ready in early 1942, just in time for a very daring plan after a devastating Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The idea was to load 16 bombers onto the deck of the USS Hornet and sail as close as they could safely get to Japan. Then, when the time was right, launch off of the carrier and bomb Tokyo as well as military installations in the area. The mission would be led by famous aviator James H. Doolittle.

On April 18th, 1942 the task force was spotted early, and even though the odds were against them, the 16 bombers roared down the deck toward history. The planes hit their targets and most ditched off of the coast of China after the raid. With one daring mission, Doolittle’s Raiders lifted the morale and spirits of everyone back in the United States.

Ground tours will be available. Contact flight crew for more information at 920-379-4244.

This B-25 Mitchell aircraft has been on display in the Eagle Hangar of the EAA museum for decades. Now, fully restored in her silver screen markings, “Berlin Express” is ready for her next mission. One to honor our World War II veterans as well as inspire a new generation of aviation enthusiasts.

Hearing protection in vicinity of aircraft is recommended. Ear plugs will be made available for use.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What happens during a flight experience?

    Here is the schedule for a typical flight experience:
    Arrival: Arrive one hour prior to your scheduled flight time to get acquainted with the aircraft and crew. You will be asked to fill out a form, and if you have not yet paid, the fee will be requested at this time as well.
    Preflight: Shortly before boarding the airplane, we will discuss aircraft safety with you and the other riders. Seating assignments and flight procedures will be discussed at this time. You will then be taken aboard the aircraft. All passengers must be seated and wear a seatbelt for engine start, taxi, and takeoff.
    During Flight: Once the aircraft is in the air, you will be allowed to move about the aircraft freely. Take this time to visit the various compartments of the aircraft. Explore as much as you like and feel free to take pictures and video.
    Landing: All passengers must be seated and wear a seatbelt for landing, taxi, and engine shutdown.

  • What should I wear or bring?

    Wear clothing appropriate to local weather conditions. The aircraft can be drafty at times, so you may consider bringing a light jacket or sweatshirt for the flight. Foam ear plugs are provided if you would like them (the flight can be quite noisy.) Cameras and camcorders are allowed (and encouraged), but please try and keep them as small as possible as space is restricted inside the airplane. Other forms of baggage are generally discouraged.

  • Do I need to be an EAA member?

    No, it is not required to be an EAA member to ride in the airplane. However, a $48 discount is given to EAA members and, as annual membership in EAA costs just $48, it makes sense to join and receive a variety of other benefits – including a one-year digital subscription to Sport Aviation magazine.

  • How many seats are available on each flight?

    There are 8 seats available on each flight available on a first-come, first-served basis. A minimum of 5 people are required per flight. If fewer than 5 people are booked, we will try to reschedule the flight that day or another day during the tour. If rescheduling is not possible these flights may be cancelled and a cancellation charge will not be assessed.

  • What happens if the weather is bad?

    If mechanical or weather problems occur at the time of your scheduled flight, alternatives will be discussed with you whether to reschedule the flight for a later time, date, or location. Weather and/or mechanical problems may delay or cancel a scheduled flight. Every effort will be made to reschedule these flights.

  • Is a waiver of liability required?

    Yes, a signed waiver must be signed by all passengers.
    A parent or legal guardian is required to sign a waiver for each minor under the age of 18.
