B-25 Maid In The Shade Bomber Arrives In Twin Falls
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A B-25 bomber named "Maid in the Shade" landed at Magic Valley Regional Airport just before noon.
The six person crew has scheduled their first ride for five o'clock tomorrow evening. The price tag is pretty hefty, though. If you want to ride in the back of the plane and look out the gunner's positions, it'll cost you $395. But to stand in the cockpit and go into the nose of the plane, you'll need to plunk down $650.
Dennis Fennessey, B-25 Flight Crew Chief, says, "We need a minimum number of four people to cover the cost of fuel and oil for the flights. So we fly in the morning before the air show, and we fly in the afternoon after the air show."
The plane carries six flight crew members and up to a total of seven passengers for each flight. You can also take a tour of the B-25 bomber when it's on the ground. A suggested $5 donation will get you inside the plane to look around.
