B-25J Mitchell

B-25J Mitchell

B-25s (called PBJs in the Navy) were used in many roles besides bombers, including as submarine patrol, trainers, reconnaissance, and gunships. B-25s flew operationally during WWII in Alaska and in the Mediterranean Theater. 9,816 were delivered to the USAAF and 200 to Allied forces. “In the Mood” was built on August 29th, 1944, in Kansas City and became a trainer, first at Turner Field in Georgia, and then at twelve other fields, until it became surplus in 1958. She was a spray tanker for about three years. It has flown off several carriers, was in the movie Pearl Harbor and is the only B-25 to takeoff from a carrier in dry dock.



Proceeds from the air show benefit these three museums in Colorado Springs that are dedicated to the education of future generations through the preservation of our nation’s military heritage.
