Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Airshows - Salute to Dick Cole, the Last Doolittle Raider

The Aero Experience coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, continues with another pictorial celebrating the North American B-25 Mitchell bomber. Here we feature the Salute to Dick Cole, the last living Doolittle Raider who passed away April 9, with the "Missing Man" formation performed by four Mitchell bomber crews. Following the formation, the B-25s Panchito, Barbie III, Berlin Express and Devil Dog made several passes in front of the crowd line before landing. This marks the end of an era for the Doolittle Raiders, but continues the work of the EAA, Commemorative Air Force, other organizations and individuals who use their warbirds to keep our history alive.
