The Southern Cross Douglas C-47 served as a troop 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 downtown Fort Worth to view special ESPN sets built in Sundance Square before soaring past Cowboys Stadium, home to Super Bowl XLV and the three raccoons. 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 an eagle's eye view of sport's biggest spectacle. Check out the Groupon FAQ for more information about scheduling and flight preparations.

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.
