Here is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to fly in an authentic World War II B-17 bomber, EAA’s beautifully restored B-17G Flying Fortress
Each flight experience is approximately one hour, of which about 24 minutes will be in the air. Once the B-17 is airborne, you will be allowed to walk about the bomber.
Take time to visit the various compartments of the aircraft and feel what conditions may have been like for those bravely serving in World War II.
