Every time a bell rings, an airplane pilot laughs at the implausibility of the television show Wings. Experience the friendly skies from the air instead of your TV set with today's Groupon, which gets you a 40-minute flight experience in the Southern Cross Douglas C-47 with 20 minutes in the air over the Christmas lights of the Metroplex. The Southern Cross Douglas C-47 served as a troop-and-supplies carrier and paratroop trainer aircraft in World War II before ending up with the Greatest Generation Aircraft family of planes, delighting flight-enthusiasts with journeys over the Fort Worth area. With this deal, you'll climb aboard the World War II flyer and blissfully cruise above Arlington and Fort Worth at night to gaze at the region's Christmas light pageantry. With one of the Southern Cross C-47's experienced pilots manning the helm, you'll fly low to get a dazzling view of the city replete with hundreds of twinkling light displays wrapped around houses, office buildings, and Jolly Green Giant snowmen.

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.
