Honor Flight Bluegrass B-25 Western KY Barnstorming Tour

August 5 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am CDT

Honor Flight Bluegrass is flying the WWII B-25 Bomber “Show Me” from the Commemorative Air Force Wing in St. Louis to honor Western Kentucky Veterans. The B-25 bomber was made famous on April 18, 1942 when 16 B-25’s led by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle took off from an aircraft carrier and attacked mainland Japan. We are looking for sponsors or individuals to cover the cost of $300 per person to fly, with WWII Veterans having first priority, then Korean War Veterans and Vietnam War Veterans. If a seat becomes available, civilians are welcome to fly as well. For more information or to reserve a seat, please contact Jeff Thoke at 502-645-5421 or email [email protected].
