It was Father's Day flight and my husband loved it!

Excellent experience on the C47 with my son who's at USAFA. Loved the ride and getting up front near the cockpit to get the "bird's eye view".

Definitely an experience to remember. We're going to do it again with my dad!

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.
