Due to construction it's a little difficult to find but well worth it, great staff and flight.

It was a lot of fun. The people are extremely nice. I bought the ride on the C-47 as a Christmas present for my husband. We are definately interested in taking the flight again.

The people were extremely nice and made everyone feel very welcome, even those of us who weren't going on the flight but went to watch. Bought as an early Christmas gift for my husband, and he really enjoyed it.

The entire evening was fantastic - my husband has not stopped talking about it yet. The pilots were extremetly competent and thoroughly knowledgable about the aircraft and its history. Will go again!!

facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Southern Cross C-47 facet_type_id: a61be9e0-5f37-1032-b7ef-2e8cc7faf544 html_text:

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.
