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.

Customer Reviews

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.

Great fun for all ages and educational too!

Very enjoyable. Wish it could have lasted longer. We'll worth the normal price but the Groupon price made it an exceptional deal.
