B-25 bomber makes trek across South Dakota


News Staff - April 17, 2019

UNDATED  - Several South Dakota cities got the chance Wednesday to see an authentic bomber from the second World War.

A B-25 bomber landed in Sioux Falls, Mitchell, Pierre and Rapid City.

The tour was dubbed the "Raid Across South Dakota"

The "Raid Across South Dakota" is designed to bring awareness to the famous "Doolittle Raid" of April 18, 1942 and the two South Dakotans who participated in the raid.

Aviator James Doolittle led a mission to attack Japan, which included 16 B-25 bombers.

A similar B-25 landed in Rapid City to commemorate the roles South Dakotans played in world history.

Kim Morey, president, South Dakota says, "Seeing an aircraft like this, that's still operating and flying around, it helps me remember some of my instructors from about 50 years ago when I was a very young man who flew combat missions in this very type of aircraft. It's just a very powerful connection."
