30 minutes over Savannah, in a B-25 bomber

'Miss Mitchell' and other vintage WWII warbirds are on hand at the Savannah airport to offer tours and rides all this weekend.
SEVENTY-FIVE years ago this month, one of the most courageous acts in military history occurred: The fabled "Doolittle Raid." Sixteen B-25 bombers, designed for land-based operations, took off from the deck of the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier U.S.S. Hornet.

Affordable Care Act provokes bulk of audience questions and anger
THE long-anticipated town hall meeting of Rep. Buddy Carter, R-Savannah, lived up to the hype in terms of crowd intensity and size of the audience, which packed the Armstrong Center auditorium to capacity well before the scheduled 3 p.m. start time this Tuesday afternoon.
