Seats are available on “Pacific Prowler,” a B-25, that will attend the upcoming Doolittle Raiders reunion commemorating the historic attack on Japan by B-25 Mitchells launched from the deck of the USS Hornet. The reunion will take place over the weekend of April 17-18 in Dayton, Ohio, at the National Museum of the Air Force. Nearly 25 B-25s have been invited to attend.
Pacific Prowler II was built in 1944 at North American’s Kansas City plant and was accepted for service in early 1945. In recent years, the Pacific Prowler has become a Hollywood star, working in more than 80 feature films, including “Memphis Belle,” “Flight of the Phoenix,” “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “Catch 22” and many more. Based at the Vintage Flying Museum at the southwest end of Meacham International Airport (FTW) Fort Worth, Texas, the B-25 is operated by the Pacific Prowler non-profit organization.
There are a few seats still left for the flight to the reunion, available on a cost share basis.
