The Ultimate WWII flying adventure puts patrons in the shoes of a WWII pilot, cruising the skies in an iconic Boeing Stearman PT-17. Guests will first learn about the plane's history and legendary tales of glory, and then take to the air for 25 minutes in the pilot's seat, donning a helmet, goggles, and white flying scarf.
