Choose from Three Options

  • $99 for a 30-minute flight for one in a Douglas C-47 (a $200 value)
  • $189 for a 30-minute flight for two in a Douglas C-47 (a $400 value)
  • $99 for B-25 bomber ground school with flight instruction and a plane tour for one (a $325 value)

Pilots take groups of up to 18 passengers for 30-minute flights over Dallas and Fort Worth in historic Douglas C-47 aircraft. During the B-25 bomber ground school, experienced pilots and crew chiefs introduce aspiring aviators to a World War II–era plane. They teach about aircraft systems, servicing, and flight operations, and supervise a hands-on, preflight inspection of the craft. A flight manual and pilot notes are included, and participants can enter a drawing to take a flight on the bomber. Ground-school sessions are held on Saturdays and Sundays, reservations are required for a specific date.

Southern Cross C-47

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.
