A piece of history is coming to Utah County Tuesday, June 27. Two vintage aircraft will be at the Provo Airport in an exhibition sponsored by Utah Valley University’s School of Aviation Sciences.

The B-25J Mitchell “Maid in the Shade” will be on hand for tours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, through Monday, July 4. It is one of only 34 of its type in the world still flying. It is part of the “Flying Legends of Victory Tour” presented by the Commemorative Air Force.

There will also be a World War II Lockheed PV-2 “Harpoon” bomber, which will arrive Thursday, June 30, for the exhibit. It is based in the Utah Wing of the Commemorative Air Force. The B-25J is based in Mesa, Ariz.

People can climb inside the B-25J and get a first-hand feel for the conditions the “greatest generation” faced while battling world tyranny. The B-25J is the type of fast, muscular aircraft made famous in the 1942 Doolittle Raid and the film “30 Seconds Over Tokyo.”

Donations are requested from those who tour the craft. The Commemorative Air Force is a non-profit organization founded in 1957 that now has more than 80 units worldwide, with more than 160 warbirds. Proceeds from the tour stops and rides fund maintenance, restoration and operations programs that make the public exhibitions possible.

In addition to tours of the craft, the public may also schedule living history flights on the B-25J. In the flight desk area, the cost is $650 each; the price in the waist gunner area is $395 each. More information is available at www.FlyingLegendsofVictory.com.
