BENEFITING: COMMEMORATIVE AIR FORCE
EVENT: 12 Planes of Christmas

THE STORY:

The SoCal Wing’s Navy/Marine B25-PBJ, Semper Fi, is the only flying PBJ in the world.

SoCal Wing obtained this warbird in May of 1993 and after 23 years of meticulous restoration it flew for the first time in May of 2016.

In its debut season, the unit has done a tremendous job of flying the PBJ to air shows, memorial fly overs and other venues¬†for public display of this historic aircraft, in flight and in static display and tours, to carry on the important mission of preserving and bringing to life what our “greatest generation” flew.

The aircraft still needs some items to “finish the job” and present a more accurate display. Practical items such as new windshields, and interior lining, as well as those “finishing touches” such as replica rockets and 50 cal. machine guns.

Your generosity will help us maintain this one of a kind aircraft on its important mission to thrill and educate future generations as well as preserve history.
