FARGO, N.D. (WDAY TV) - Airplane enthusiasts have an exciting week ahead of them at the Fargo Air Museum. This B-25 bomber known as Miss Mitchell was built in Kansas City in 1944 and will be in Fargo through tomorrow.

The B-25 was made famous during World War II for being the first bomber capable of taking off from an aircraft carrier. The flight crew hopes to give rides tomorrow morning and possibly again in the afternoon. Each flight last about an hour and costs $450.

Jim Gilmore - Commemorative Air Force: “Back in WWII 18, 19 and 20 year-olds were the ones flying these aircraft. We just want them to come out to experience that, kind of get an idea to what those guys went through.”

Those interested in a ride on the B-25 bomber tomorrow should call the Fargo Air Museum.
