RAID Across South Dakota 2022
Hosted by the Black Hills Military Advisory Coalition, the tour is called “RAID’22,” named as an homage to the two South Dakotans who took part in the famous “Doolittle Raid” of 1942 and Ellsworth Air Force Bases’ military lineage connecting to the Doolittle Raiders. The RAID’22 will fly into the airports of Sioux Falls, Brookings, Aberdeen, Chamberlain, Pierre, Rosebud, Rapid City on May 10 through 13.

Ellsworth AFB is Home of the Raiders. Three of the 4 Doolittle squadrons call Ellsworth Home – 34th Bomb Squadron, 37th Bomb Squadron, and the 89th Attack Squadron. The legacy of heroism, innovation, and commitment to duty lives in every Airmen serving at Ellsworth.

Join us as we celebrate the Doolittle Heritage across South Dakota and highlight some amazing South Dakotan’s who have left their mark on military aviation history.

I'm hoping to see this show and spend a couple of days exploring the area. We're flying in and out of Denver, with Fri-Sun night planned in Rapid City. Is it better to stay in Rapid City for 2 more nights or is there a better option somewhere in between?

Thanks for any advice.
