RAID ACROSS SOUTH DAKOTA!
On April 17, the SDASM will be conducting the "Raid Across South Dakota" to commemorate South Dakota's contribution to the famous Doolittle Raid of April 18, 1942!
We'll be flying an authentic WWII B-25 bomber from Sioux Falls to Mitchell to Pierre to Rapid City and onto Ellsworth AFB where it will take part in a base event commemorating the 77th anniversary of the Raid.
Educators and History Buffs alike are encouraged to experience The Raid Across South Dakota at the following (times subject to change):
April 16, from 4pm-5pm at Maverick Air Center, Sioux Falls
April 17 from 8am-9am at Wright Brothers Aviation, Mitchell
April 17 from 11am-Noon at The Pierre Regional Airport, Pierre
April 17 from 1:30pm-3:30pm at L&D Aero Services, Rapid City Regional Airport (click for google map of L&D Aero Services)
There'll be an excellent educational handout featuring award-winning history writer Barrett Tillman, model B-25s to build and other special surprises.
