Visit the Frontiers of Flight Museum and step back into the time of WWII on one of the few airworthy B-17s in the world, from the Experimental Aircraft Association, Chapter 34. Feel the might of the “Flying Fortress” 65,000-lb. B-17 bomber as it soars through the sky.

Stand in the footsteps of the bombardier, the navigator, and the waist gunner and relive history by experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly in one of World War II’s most vital and magnificent aircraft. People of all ages will appreciate the history associated with this airplane that helped the Allies achieve victory.

Advance flight reservations are available for $409 for members and $449 for non-members. Walk-up reservations run $435-$475. Revenues from the B-17 tour help cover maintenance and operations costs for the aircraft and aid the EAA’s ambition to “keep ’em flying” for many years to come. Flights are weather-permitting.
