Historic Bomber Opens Saturday at Airshow of the Cascades

The smoke and haze cleared enough on Saturday afternoon to give visitors to the Airshow of the Cascades a close-up look at a B-25 Mitchell Bomber in action.

16 of those aircraft took part in the famous Doolittle Raid on April 18,1942. They took off from the deck of the aircraft carrier Hornet to become the first air raid on the Japanese home island in World War Two. The B-25 Mitchell Bomber is part of the collection at the Erickson Aircraft Collection in Madras.
