You can re-live history and ride on one of the rarest World War II bombers in existence by taking a Living History BOMBER RIDE. This unique in-the-air experience allows you to sit in their seat and see and feel what our veterans encountered.. minus the bullets and flak.

Once airborne you will be able to get up and move around (except FAA rules require the B-29 bombardier to stay seated). Your trip back in time will allow you to honor the sacrifices of countless men and women who fought and died for our freedoms.

Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's a definite must for your bucket list.

FiFi flies at an altitude of less than 10,000 feet and has an open-air, unpressurized cabin that holds ten passengers, four in front, and six in the rear. Her flight crew consists of six experienced, highly trained pilots, engineers, and scanners.

Cameras are the only baggage allowed on flights.

Historical Flight Experiences on FiFi range in cost from $570 to $1495 (prices if buy on-line) for the approx. 30-minute flight.

More than just an airplane, the B-17 is living history that holds a remarkable connection to the past and is the most iconic image of World War II. - Flight cost $449 to $475.

All riders must be able to physically climb in and out of the aircraft on the own power, including climbing a ladder.

While not flying, both aircraft will be on display, and you will be able to view the plane! Tours of the inside of the planes will be limited to times when the crew is not getting ready for flights
