Aviation museum offers rides in vintage B-25 Mitchell Bomber

July 12, 2020

The Delaware Aviation Museum in Georgetown offers rides for the public in its iconic World War II B-25 Mitchell Bomber, Panchito, which was the lead plane for the recent Sussex Air Force tribute to healthcare workers.

Parties of 3 to 6 passengers can view the Delaware beaches in a 30-minute ride. Participants learn what it was like for the brave young men who volunteered daily to fly the B-25 into harm’s way to protect Americans’ freedom and way of life. The museum has been tremendously affected by cancellation of the usual air shows, and supporters hope these plane rides will help bring in vital financial support. 

The cost per seat is $425. For a limited time, a 10 percent discount is offered for parties of six. Passengers must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a parent.
