Victoria Flying Club at The Victoria International Airport welcomes the historic WWII Bomber B-25J, Maid in the Shade. The iconic aircraft will be on display for the public to tour through the aircraft from July 28 to August 3. Enjoy a flight, breath in the history, and learn about the unique roll these aircraft played in military aviation history.
The B25 Mitchell was made famous by the Doolittle Raiders on April 18, 1942. Sixteen B25s took off from the deck of the USS Hornet and bombed Tokyo just four months after Pearl Harbour. The B25 served in many roles from bomber to transport. In the post war years, it became best known for its role as a fire bomber.
Maid in the Shade is available for public viewing from 8am to 4pm daily at the Victoria Flying Club, located at 1852 Canso Road at the Victoria International Airport.
Cockpit tours are available for $5, or a family rate of $10. If you’re looking to cross an item off your bucket list, there’s a limited number of flights available.
