What a beautiful way to see the lights of Fort Worth. We took another couple with us and luckily one of them was an airplane enthusiast because he asked questions of the pilot - so we got some wonderful insight on that plane. Yes, it was loud.... all I could think is that those poor soldiers who had to endure that day after day; sure makes me grateful for their service.

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.
