NORTH AMERICAN TB-25N N9079Z s/n 44-30734 “PANCHITO”

One of the most well-known B-25 aircraft in the world! Panchito has been the lead aircraft at many events celebrating the Doolittle Raiders in the past 10 years, Superbowl XXXIX, Indy 500, Preakness Race and NASCAR races

$1,400,000 for aircraft and extensive spares package
The FAA has recognized the historical value of many former American military aircraft and has granted approval for many aircraft that do not hold a Standard certificate to operate for historic flights and training under a special program called Living History Flight Experience. The LHFE program sets specific requirements and approval for operators of these aircraft to receive compensation for the use of the aircraft.
 (The current owner can assist a buyer with many options available for continuing a LHFE program with Panchito).
