Fly In A B-17, B-24, Or B-25

Tue Mar 21, 2006 11:58 am

Just came across this today. April 6-11 at Dallas Love Field, we will have all three airplanes there with flights available on all three. Flyer for event. It is being hosted by the Frontiers of Flight Museum at DAL and the flights run from between $325-$425 per person. If anyone has any questions about it, feel free to shoot me a message, I'll be heading over there later this week to find out more information.

I've always been fond of the B-25

any chance there will sometimes somewhere be pleasure flights on any later USAF types, like the B-52, KC-135, C-5, C-17, C-130 etc?

The Mid Atlantic Air Museum, Reading, PA, will offer similar opportunities, with rides in aircraft ranging from the AT-6 Texan to the world's last flying B-29, the latter costing $1250 - $1500, the first time rides have ever been offered on this aircraft!

Unforunately, this is beyond my budget, but would certainly be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I'll be on the sidelines, with my camera!

When I was driving across the 520 bridge on Lake Washington last summer, I caught a B-17 circling the north end of the lake...I'm pretty sure these guys were the ones operating the flight. Very very cool.
