Three Historic WWII Airplanes To Visit Greenville SC

B-25 Mitchell Bomber, P-51 Mustang And SBD Dive Bomber Will Offer Rides

Three iconic World War II aircraft will bring history  alive May 5 -7 at the Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU), Airport Rd Ext., Greenville, SC.

The Minnesota Wing and the Dixie Wing of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) will bring  a B-25, “Miss Mitchell”; a P-51, “Red Nose”; and an SBD-5 Dauntless dive bomber for the  enjoyment of aviation fans in the Greenville area. The trio of beautifully restored WWII  warbirds will be at the Runway Cafe ramp and the CAF will offer once-in- a lifetime rides in  all three aircraft.

“It has been many years since the Commemorative Air Force has brought aircraft to the  Greenville Downtown Airport,” said Joe Frasher, GMU's Airport Director. “We are thrilled  that they are coming back. People will not want to miss seeing these World War II aircraft.  In the past, when people have heard of these types of visits after the fact, they were sad that  they missed seeing them in person.”

“It is an honor for us to visit Greenville with these great warbirds,” said Jay Bess, Dixie  Wing Leader. “We look forward to welcoming veterans and Greenville area residents. This  is part of a five-stop tour to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raid over  Japan, and it is a rare opportunity for people to ride in three historic WWII aircraft.”
