This week our maintenance team unfortunately discovered critical engine damage on our B-25 Miss Mitchell and have been working to repair it. Over the weekend, we discovered that the engine is not repairable by our maintenance team, but will require a full engine overhaul and will need to be sent back to the engine overhaul facility.
It is with deep sadness that we will not be able to participate in the Raid Across South Dakota or the Ellsworth Airshow. Our volunteers have truly been looking forward to both events. We hope that the engine overhaul can be completed quickly so that we can prevent additional show cancellations this season.

We truly appreciate your support and understanding.
