B-25 planes on display at Destin Airport
DESTIN -- In 1942, the Doolittle Raiders set off on a mission many thought was impossible, a bombing run on Tokyo.
After training at Eglin Field, they took off in B-25 bombers flying into history.
Several B-25's are in Okaloosa County this week, as part of the Doolittle Raiders' 71st reunion.
Volunteer organizations donate thousands of hours every year to keep them in the sky.
They say keeping history alive is a way to honor the Raiders and all who serve.
Lynn May/DAV Flight Team "To think you're there with a gun and people are shooting at you. I can't imagine how it must have felt. They had to be scared to death, and at the same time, what courage, what valor"
The B-25's will be on display at Destin Airport through Sunday.
Rides will be offered to the public for a cost of $425.
That money helps pay for fuel and maintenance.
