    Very cool. I'm going to try very hard to catch the the CAF tour in 2014 and take a ride. I just haven't decided which plane.

    Thanks.

    Hope you ride a plane next year. Although the ride is quite expensive, it's going to be a very nice experience.

    Wasn't able to take a ride. I just heard from a friend that the B-17G was in town on the same day. It seems like you need to book in advance if you are planning to take a ride.

    My Dad was a navigator in a B-17. 25 years? ago there was a B-17 at a local airport and we went up in it.

    It's always a hit whenever such piece of history visits a place/ town.
