The past met the present today in KOTA Territory.
It was all part of paying tribute to a historic flight, the 70th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid.
The crew from The Historic Flight Foundation landed a World War II era B-25 Mitchell Bomber at Ellsworth Air Force Base.
The B-25 is much like one of the 16 bombers which provided the first air raid of World War II over Japan in 1942.
The plane is the oldest operational B-25 in existence.
Today, could also be the last time Ellsworth sees one of these rare bombers that formerly filled it's hangers during World War II.
Pilot John Sessions of the Historic Flight Foundation says " It's reflective of a period of great innovation and personal courage, and I think these planes are iconic and hopefully inspire us to do our best."
The Air Force lost 11 serviceman and all 16 of the planes in the historic raid over Tokyo.
The five remaining survivors of the raid still meet annually to pay respect to their brothers in arms.
