This was a gift so I didn't get to go but I was there for support. The staff was extremely nice and polite. My guests had a great time. This is one that Groupon got right for a change. The only suggestion I have is to have a dress code. The woman who appeared to be a stripper and letting it all hang out was not appropriate for the occasion nor younger people in attendance.

Super cool experience to see Fort Worth from a birds eye view and all the local Christmas lights including Interlochen. I'd definitely do this again.

This has become a holiday tradition for my father, brother, & I as our grandfather flew DC-3’s and this is my fathers favorite plane. Great flight. Greater crew. Best views. This plane is a priceless piece of American history and am encouraging all to partake in its continued support and preservation. Thank you to the whole team and volunteers at Greatest Generation Aircraft. We salute you all.

About 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.
