For those that haven’t been into the Terminal Building there in Milwaukee, the area that they have for the General Mitchell artifacts and memorabilia is very well done. Excellent in fact.

The restoration of the plane to accurately depict a B-25 that served with distinction crewed by Milwaukee residents would be a great addition and be very impactful inside the capacious terminal. Hopefully a great static preservation/restoration can be also brought inside to preserve the aircraft for many generations....perhaps as “Bedroom Commando”?

A post today on Facebook shows the wing is reinstalled and looking good. A big thanks to the crew involved!

They make it look easy, when I'm sure it's not.
Well done to the crew and the airport for keeping the display.
