B-25 Bomber stops in Southport
Southport Airport is home to a special guest this week.
The 'Maid in the Shade' B-25 J Mitchell Bomber is stationed at Southport this week as part of the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum's Flying Legends of Victory Tour – one of only 34 B-25s that still flies today.
An aircraft used in America's first large-scale bombing offensive in the Philippines – the place is open for public tours and flights as week-long festivities are planned at the airfield in conjunction with the visit.
Tour times are as follows:
Monday and Friday-Sunday, 2-6 p.m.
Tuesday-Thursday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Friday-Sunday 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
