Thursday, the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) invited members of the Springfield media to take flight on a B-17G Flying Fortress.. a World War II Bomber. And this was an incredible experience.
It’s pricey, but if you have a thing for airplanes, a history buff, or just looking for a unique experience, this is something to heavily consider. You have access to pretty much the entire plane, including gun bays and even the cockpit. Before takeoff you learn the incredible history of of this B-17, as well as the current status of these beasts (less than 6 still take flight!)
