B-25 Miss Mitchell Engine Trouble

South St. Paul, MN (May 8, 2022)- This week the maintenance team of the Minnesota Wing unfortunately discovered critical engine damage on their assigned B-25 Miss Mitchell. The team took swift action to repair it. Over the weekend, they further discovered that the engine will not be able to be repaired by their maintenance team, but will require a full engine overhaul at an overhaul facility. Sending the engine out for repairs adds additional costs and time to the repair project.

The timing is terrible as the B-25 was slated to participate in the Raid Across South Dakota event and the Ellsworth Airshow. Volunteers were truly looking forward to both events. They are hoping that the engine overhaul can be completed quickly so that they can prevent additional show cancellations this season.
