Arvid Erickson, a World War II veteran who served in the South Pacific, was among those who came Saturday to see the B-25. The bomb emblems below him signify the missions the "Miss Mitchell'' flew without the loss of a crew member's life. The original Miss Mitchell completed over 140 combat missions without a crew fatality, according to information from the Minnesota Wing of the Commemorative Air Force. (Tribune photo by Tom Cherveny)
