In olden times, climbing into the sky was only attainable by finding magic beans and then selling them to buy a blimp. Witness an original airy tale firsthand with this GrouponLive deal: for $5, you get admission for one carload of visitors to Greatest Generation Aircraft's Annual Spring Fling at Meacham Airport on Saturday, March 31, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (a $10 value).

Throughout Greatest Generation Aircraft's Annual Spring Fling extravaganza, a crew of sky-scaling experts educates the public about the history and preservation of classic aircraft that once whisked pilots high into the clouds. A fleet of vintage aircraft rolls onto Meacham Airport's runway, dazzling onlookers with their shiny exteriors, spinning propellers, and wings that haven't lost their feathers due to age. As guests stroll around the event's grounds, they can visit a variety of static displays to glean facts on the innovation of air-based transportation, or book a 15-minute ride on a 1940s-era Douglas C-47 (not included in this deal; $50/person). The revving engines of vintage cars on display attempt to divert attention from aircraft exhibits, while onsite food vendors keep pedestrians humming along with tasty victuals.

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.
