Pilots then take guests for 30-minute flights above the DFW area in a historic Douglas C-47, a World War II-era plane. Flying at low altitudes, they will see Lake Arlington's Interlochen Christmas Lights as well as views of downtown Fort Worth.

Children ages 2 and younger may fly for free in the lap of a paid adult. Passengers in wheel chairs can be assisted on board.

Greatest Generation Aircraft

Originally a TWA aircraft, the Southern Cross Douglas C-47 was adopted by the Army Air Corps to shuttle troops to the front. The twin-propeller plane survived World War II and in the ensuing years underwent a series of makeovers. Its career includes years spent as a reliable set of wings for Delta Air Lines, a troupe of skydiving enthusiasts, and at least one head of state. The C-47 is now meticulously restored to its original WWII-era condition and in the dutiful care of Greatest Generation Aircraft, a nonprofit organization that introduces 21st-century crowds to the C-47 during rides and aerial shows.

In a Nutshell

Flight in a historic WWII vintage C-47 aircraft takes passengers above the DFW area to view Christmas Lights in a way never seen before.
