One of the last WWII-era bombers still flying is on display in St. Hubert
The Maid in the Shade, now a “flying museum,” landed in town Monday.
The B-25 bomber saw action on the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean.
Following the war, every detail was restored, including rounds in the nose cone, and a faux bomb ready to be dropped.
It’s one of just 34 B-25 bombers still left flying in the world and will remain on display to the public in St. Hubert until Sunday.
It's a great summer for flying enthusiasts in the Montreal area. Earlier this summer a flying museum -- a Boeing B 29 Super Fortress -- also spent several days in St. Hubert, while Montreal non-profit Avialogs is in the process of restoring a DC3 used during WWII.
