THE STORY:

Amy Lauria wrote -

The Minnesota Wing of the CAF is making efforts to restore our B-25 “Miss Mitchell” with as much detail as possible to exhibit how she looked during combat operations in WWII. 

We have already made great strides in the restoration process, including:

  • Getting the top and tail turrets operational
  • Restoring the bomb release system to original, operational condition
  • Connecting and verifying operation of the Norden Bombsight
  • Stenciling the exterior of the aircraft utilizing original WWII drawings

Although these are huge first steps, we have a long way to go! We have a number of projects we are trying to complete this winter, including:

  • Installing the radio rack and WWII radios
  • Add components for the waist guns and tail gun system
  • Decals for the interior of the aircraft
  • Install all the original VHF, LF and HF antennas
  • Adding the flare gun, bomb camera, and other original furnishings
  • Finishing landing gear, floors, and equipment to original specs

For an extremely detailed walk through of what we have accomplished and what we are working on this winter, check out the photos and video included on this page, or check out this link: https://www.facebook.com/CommemorativeAF/videos/10154538325162510/
