Donations needed to bring B-25 bombers to Quincy

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

If you want to see the B-25 bombers fly over this years Veterans Day parade in Quincy, your help is needed.

Five flyers from the Commemorative Air Force have already confirmed they're willing to fly over the parade, however they're still short on the $2,000 in fuel it would take to make the trip to Quincy from St. Charles, Missouri.

Organizers says this is a very memorable part of the parade that veterans deserve to see.

Matt Courtney says, "they normally charge $3200 just for an appearance fee, they're going to waive that fee and we need to get the fuel cost covered for them."

If you'd like to donate...contact Jim Ponsot at 217-228-9759 or mail your donation to him at 801 Pawn Avenue, Quincy, IL 62305.
